Rendered 300 frame animation of the bunker scene in 25h including 90 (!) min cache building.
Then used DaVinci Resolve to retime into 1200 frames for 24 x 50/s.
The DaVinci optical flow algorithm has problems with the concrete texture, probably I should have used motion blur.

Very nice and clean! :D
Did you use OIDN for this one as well or only cache?

Yes, thanks!
There was too much noise in the shadows so I used 1000 samples with OIDN and mixed it with 30% undenoised in the compositor.

another animation

Several meshes derived from the menger sponge rendered with hybrid path + indirect & caustic caches. Lightning is a bit unstable.

Thanks, using a PC with Ryzen 3900X (Eco Mode) & RTX 3060 @ 120W (wall power draw 260W) I rendered 450 frames a 7.5 min ≈ 2.4 days.

Quite good. If you don't mind, would you also kindly describe more, provide info on scene stats, Lux settings...
