I tried to accelerate my MacBook pro internal screen with the egpu. It is succeeded, I found that my intel graphic also running at the same time although it runs not very significantly like < 10%. Do you guys think that it is good for long time gaming usage? As when I use egpu with the external screen, the intel graphic stop working even though the screen is on.

It will be fine. The iGPU needs to be running in order for eGPU to provide loopback acceleration. 10% or less utilization does not cause much heat so there’s no concerns with extended period of use.
