Quick question about 6 pin connectors

I'm wondering, for a video card like the HD 4870 that requires two 6-pin connectors, does it card draw power from one of the connectors primarily and then when it needs more it draws from the other or is it simultaneous?

  1. I believe it uses both at the same time.
  2. yep, uses both. the reason there are 2 connectors is so it doesnt draw too much power through 1 pcie cable and burn out the cable or melt the insulation.
  3. It uses both at the same time i will not function without them both
