On the 16-Inch MacBook Pro and the LG UltraFine 5K Display

I’ve gotten a couple questions about the new 16-inch MacBook Pro and the LG UltraFine 5K display. The display can provide 87 watts of power, but the notebook comes with a 96 watt adaptor. Turns out, Apple has added this to the display’s product page:

This display provides host charging power to your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. For optimal performance on the 16-inch MacBook Pro, connect to power using the MacBook Pro’s 96W adapter.

Notably, this notebook will be able to drive two ProDisplay XDRs when it ships next month.

My kingdom for an Apple-branded 5K external display using the case of the iMac.
