Framework 16 on 100-140w charger

Hi there! Quick question for the lucky ones to have the FW16.
Did you try to use it with/without the dGPU on a 140w or 100w charger? How much performance is gained compared to battery only?
Thank you in advance!

Without dGPU, the max power draw is about 90W. So you get max performance but not much battery charging

And with the dGPU?

I don’t know, I don’t have one

Anecdotally, I see equal performance if I set the power profile to either Balanced or Performance and I’m connected to my Dell monitor through USB-C. I believe the monitor only provides 60 W, so the battery discharges, but it takes quite a while.

I only see a performance hit (specifically, during a game where I noticed a massive drop in FPS) when the battery gets low enough that the power profile switches to Power Saver.
