3 8 pins is highly unlikely, thats a hell of a lot of power, likely in excess of 400W, you then start running the risk of overheating other things in the case, i imagine that much heat in a case would shorten the life of everything unless you are running your system in a wind tunnel in the arctic.
Yeah I was just pointing out that its not a big deal that it has xx power connectors. When the low power ATI chips need basically the same thing. But of course I'm sure it runs cool to.
yea, I just don't understand how they made this possible. I assume that there will be a nice cooler added to this card, hopefully they raised the max heat threshold because rest assured this thing is going to hit 100c quite easily.
