    Can someone help me out understanding why Mediatek makes such low quality GPUs?

    The reason i'm asking it's because every time we see a new chip from MediaTek, there is always a low capability GPU attached to it

    MediaTek has long been known for making inexpensive chips for budget devices. I think they're trying to break into the premium device market, but they're still mostly in cheap phones and tablets. Cheap equals low capability.

    I assume the same yeah. However they do use AMD GPU right? If they do get into premium market I hope they use some sort high end gpu.

    The GPUs are either PowerVR (made by Imagination Technologies) or Mali (made by ARM): MediaTek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    Because mediatek company from china.
    In chip industry huge number of technologies which can be used as a military.
    Some technologies can't be licences to some countries or licences is limited.
    GPU good for fast concurrent calculation. Such type of calculations can be used for product for military.
    It's just one part of answer.
    Such situation with companies from Russia. They have some limitation for using new CPU and chip technologies.
    Also such countries can't buy some manufacturing devices.

    It's company from china.
    Some technologies can't be shared with china and other countries. For example Russia also have some limitation.
    GPU is good for concurrent calculations. Such type of calculations can be used by devices for military.
    If china want to manufacture fast GPU they must develop such GPU from scratch.
    China also have limits of their technologies for export. Such limitation is usual for new technologies in different spheres.
