It does lower the effect but it doesn't disappear completely even at 5 subdivs and . I think this is one of those cases in which a cheat is fine with me as long as I get something that looks good.

Vlad Mafteiu Scai (00Ghz) added a comment to T41273: Artifact .

One way to get the octane like result is to make sure that at maxbounces -1 the shader is 100% diffuse / all the mixes evaluate to 0 / the first input so the shader would be diffuse at that stage.
