ARM Mali-G52 MP1

ARM Mali-G52 MP1

The ARM Mali-G52 MP1 (or G52MC1) is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based Tablets). It was introduced mid 2020 in the MediaTek MT8168 with a clock speed of up to 800 MHz.

The G52 is based on the Bifrost architecture and is intended for mainstream phones. ARM claims that the G52 series offers 30% more performance density and 15% better energy efficiency compared to the ARM Mali G51 series.

The performance of the G52MP2 in our benchmarks (in the MediaTek MT8168) is clearly below the G52 MP2 version in the entry level. That means its not well suited for demanding 3D Android games like PUBG Mobile.

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0 and Renderscript.
