I'm not sure if the Godox/Cheetah unit you're looking at has an optical slave (given that it's got proprietary wireless, it's kind of a side issue).

They do.  On the front are two red lens covers.  One is for the focus assist light, the other for the optical slave.  You can choose to fire on first or second flash.

But I think the Elinchrom system is more sophisticated in that it "learns" the pattern of individual camera brands. For example I have a Sony cam that defies nearly all such slave systems simply because of it's unusual timing between the pre-flash and flash.
