First of all thanks to everyone who have answered my question. The goal is a rendering farm. An 8 node prototype would be the star point but eventually a 40 node unit # 1 ( rack ) is the actual project.

To answer your question directly, the answer is, no the performance is
not the same.  BUT, you've asked a very workload dependent question,
but have not told us anything about what you're trying to do, so
deciding which is the right choice is pretty hard.  It would be unwise
to make this decision solely on price, without understanding the trade
offs in productivit
