Global illumination often changes slowly over surfaces. This means that several neighboring pixels could share similar GI lighting without visible artifacts. This, in turn, means we don't necessarily have to individually compute GI lighting for each pixel on the screen. Irradiance caching takes advantage of this observation and computes GI at sparse points around the image. As a result, rendering takes much less time.
