Will this sufficiently maintain power levels on the new 16” MacBook Pro?

Since the new 16” MacBook Pro has a 96W power adapter, how will this do maintaining a charge on that machine?

  • The GPU of the MBP is 50W of your power consumption alone so if you use an eGPU your MBP will only eat through something in the neighborhood of 40-50W. This is estimating 100W max MBP consumption - 50W for the internal dGPU that you are no longer using. You will be charging even when under a full load since the MBP consumption will be significantly less than it would without the eGPU.
