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.
