Hello, I'm a newbie to animation and everything so I'm inquiring more about the hardware side of rendering. Namely, I want to find out that when constructing a renderfarm, should you use a Server Processor (ex. Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 Processor) or a Desktop Processor (ex. Intel i9 7980XE Processor) ? Which would be better in terms of utility, speed, efficiency, cost, quantity and quality, etc ? Basically, is or better to use a Server Processor or a Deaktop Processor?
And before anyone asks, yes I am aware that GPU rendering is faster than CPU rendering but while CPU rendering is slower, it is also more precise when it comes to the details, which is why the big animation companies like Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, etc. use CPU rendering for their films instead of GPU rendering

If this is a serous question, this is probably not the best forum in which to ask it. Live Science is more about the news and conceptual side of computers, rather than specific hardware. I am also removing the link in your post, as it is entirely unrelated to the topic or this site.

May I suggest:
