Top 5 best render farms 2023 for CPU & GPU

In recent years, we have witnessed many new render farms born and die, but the general trend of render farms has changed drastically along with a lot of new technologies supporting the 3D field. Not out of the game, VFXRendering has run many tests, and comparisons to find the right render farm position rankings. So, in this article, we will summarize for you the 5 best render farms 2023 by our recent tests.

Like our reminder many times, our rankings will be updated every 6 months and we will not stop running the comparison, and making videos. The rankings in this article are updated according to our most recent comparisons.

Without being lengthy to make you wait any longer, let’s explore!

The 5 best GPU render farms 2023

We ran a series of tests with various 3D software and render engines to find the best render farm. If you haven’t watched the previous comparisons yet, we’ve left the links below. You can read it or watch our videos below.

Look at the table summarizing the results above. We can see that for GPU rendering, we can rank the positions as follows:

  1. iRender Farm
  2. Ranch Computing
  3. Garage Farm
  4. Rebus Farm
  5. Fox Render Farm

The 5 best CPU render farms 2023

According to our render farm test projects: render a 210-frame, 1920×1080 resolution project with Cinema 4D R2023.1.3 and Arnold 4.5.1. We have the rendering results below:

CPU render farms comparison in term of render time

You can read the detail of the test in the article: Top 5 best CPU render farm comparison

Or in this video below.

Clearly, we have the top 5 best CPU render farms in 2023 as follows:

  1. Ranch Computing
  2. Rebus Farm
  3. Garage Farm
  4. iRender Farm
  5. Fox Render Farm


Finally, we can make our own recommendations for the 3 best render farms in 2023: Garage Farm, iRender Farm, and Ranch Computing. Garage Farm is the cheapest render farm and has fast render times, but it does not support certain 3D software and render engines. iRender Farm is the fast and most balanced render farm in terms of cost and renders speed. This render Farm supports all current 3D software as well as rendering engines. And, Ranch Computing is the fastest render farm with the highest cost.

We understand that change is inevitable and there are a lot of render farms out there. They can replace the render farms in the ranking in the future if this render farm stands still.

And we will come back with a new series of render farms comparisons after 6 months to update the ranking. We plan to invite some popular render farms to join our battle and make a new series of render farms comparison. Please wait for the next battle of the render farms series. See you in the next article!
