    Ah.
    15W Whiskey Lake CPU. 65W or 90W charger, depending on Intel or Nvidia graphics. Barrel jack.

    I read that you could also power the MSI (or ASUS ?) laptop using a small usb-c adapter (65W), not for gaming obviously, since it will drain the battery more than it will charge, but for idle/surf/studying it could be used.

    It was in one of their CES slide if I recall either ASUS or MSI.

    Probably not MSI. They've refused to implement USB-C charging for years, and I haven't seen anything indicating a change in that stance.

    I believe that is ASUS. It's mentioned by Jarrod in his ASUS CES video in reference to the GX701

    ASUS, they had one that you could use for day to day tasks on the smaller adapter and then plug in the bigger one for gaming.

    I heard this in several interviews at CES that iI have watched. It will switch between the onboard card and the RTX card, and when it's using the onboard card, the laptop will be able to be charged using usb type-C. But for anything else usb-C will not be able to provide enough voltage to power the laptop.
