E-Cycles patches made in 2019 will progressively become public in 2020, so everybody can benefit from it for free. E-Cycles is an optimized version of Cycles, primarily for NVidia cards, but many CPU and AMD GPU users use it now too for it's improved UI, profiles, alternative sampling strategies, AI denoising addon and support.
If you want to help me to continue and get all the improvements at once in 2020, with even more speed improvements, features, workflow polishing, regularly updated builds, support and tutorials with an early access, you can learn how I did it or get one of my addons available on the Blender Market.

- User switching from Octane: 1, 2
- E-Cycles viewport vs Cycles viewport with complex lightning
