star citizen and escape from tarkov on mbp 13 with egpu questions

i'm new to  this forum so i hope it's ok to ask for some gaming tests:
Im planning on buying a new MacBook Pro, preferable 13 inch with i5/16GB Ram/512 SSD with an eGPU to replace my 2012 rMbp 15 inch and my old gaming pc.

I'm playing Star Citizen (yes i know its an alpha, not optimized, a scam, ...) and planing on getting Escape from Tarkov.

Does anyone have these games and a similar MacBook Pro Setup and can give me some FPS Numbers and CPU temperatures while playing?
i don't have decided on a graphic card yet.


Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

I have a few gaming benchmarks in my build guides that may help... whatever you buy you’ll get a fair bit better performance than me due to quad core cpu and a non tb3 monitor.
