    According to AMD's Product Specifications Page, you only need 1 x 6-pin PCIe power connector.

    You are right, but im confuse cause amazon says its 2 x 6 pin PCIe connectors
  3. Hmm. I do recall reading somewhere that there were some models using non-reference designs that required 2 x 6-pin connectors. What model are you looking at @ Amazon?

    The Gygabite one
  5. Gigabyte makes several models. Do you have a specific model number, or at least a link to the page you're looking at?
  6. the HIS turbo 7850 uses two power connectors but most 7850 cards use one

    they all come with at least one molex adapter

    I believe Amazon is incorrect, that gigabyte 7850 needs only 1 connector.
