Do AMD powered eGPU's require the Macbook to be turned on with the eGPU?

I'm still a little fuzzy with the details, but I know AMD is a more supported brand by Apple as of recent. Because of this I'm wondering if an eGPU on say, the 2015 or 2016 macbook pros, requires the laptop to be powered on after the eGPU is powered on as well. Was this a finicky nVidia card thing or does this apply to all eGPU's on Mac OS?
