    I'm very impressed with the full screen game performance in a Win 10 client under Parallels 16. For reference I'm using a 2020 MacbookPro 16 inch with i9 2.3Ghz, 32GB Ram, and AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB.

    However, it seems that so much power is required for this that my battery starts depleting despite having the 96w USB-C power adaptor connected.

    Is this just one of those can't-do-anything-about-it situations? Or is the only answer to reduce performance to within the machine's power capabilities?

    It just seems odd that it would be possible to do something on the machine that actually requires more electricity than the machine can draw.
