So the reflections show up in the 2015 Lightwave but not in the new Lightwave.
They look bitmapped.
I'm using the benchmark Marbles file with the suggestions in this video:

I isolated one section in this render:

Check to see if Glossy Reflections are turned on under Shading Model in the surface editor

It's a bit of a mystery. Here are some settings shots:

That was brought up in the benchmark thread. RebelHill did a video on how to get it back to the way it was:

Roboman, check the original post, that's the same video he already mentioned following.

nic98, check your smoothing threshold for the surfaces exhibiting the problem. In the screen shot you provided, the surface's smoothing threshold value looks quite low (0.05 deg) compared to the value RH uses (varies, 89.xx deg for some, 39.xx deg for others).

It all seems to work after the 2018.01 update.
I also downloaded the file again.
So on the current 2.6 ghz mac mini from 2014 it took maybe 10 to 12 minutes render time.
