2400g vs i3-3240: Does the CPU matter with a lower end graphics card?

In our previous test, it was shows that the 2400G's Radeon™ Vega 11 Graphics doesn't have the same in game performance as the RX 460 2GB, which was released in August of 2016 or the GTX 750 ti 2 GB which was released in February 2014.

Other tests have shown that the 2400G's Radeon™ Vega 11 Graphics doesn't perform as well as a GT 1030 in most games.  Also, other tests have shown that the 2400G's Radeon™ Vega 11 Graphics can be outperformed in most games by an Intel G4650 and GT 1030.  However, it may be useful to have the 4 cores and 8 threads if you plan to perform a graphics card upgrade in the future to something faster than a GT 1030.

AMD 2400G performance in World of Tanks 1.01

In February 2018, AMD released the 2400G.  At the time, there was a high demand for graphics cards due to crypto currency mining and graphics card prices were elevated.  In the past few weeks, graphics card prices have come down closer to MSRP for most graphics cards.  Also AMD drivers have matured and the initial issues with the 2400G and 2200G that some users experienced were resolved.

After the release of the 2400G and 2200G, World of Tanks 1.0 was released.  Wargaming has had time to work on issues related to the new graphics and game engine changes.  Now that most of the game issues and driver UEFI/BIOS, and software issues are resolved with the 2400G, its a good time to really see how the 2400G performs in World of Tanks.

Some users on the World of Tanks forums have stated that the 2400G and its onboard Radeon™ Vega 11 Graphics are perfectly capable of playing World of Tanks 1.0 smoothly on the Ultra graphics preset at 1920x1080 resolution.  Tests with other games have shown that the 2400G's Radeon™ Vega 11 Graphics are comparable to the GT 1030 in most games.
