I came across this Gamdias 650G PSU. Its CPU EPS has 8 pins at the PSU end but it’s split as 2 x (4 + 4) at the motherboard end. There are certain boards that now come with 8 + 4 EPS power sockets for more power hungry CPUs.
However if the pins at PSU end are still 8 and that’s split as 8 + 8 at the other end how can it meet the power needs? Your power would still be the same, what you are doing is at the same voltage splitting the current?
Am I missing some fundamental understanding here about how PSU and loads on it work? May I get the correct understanding how splitting power cables actually work on ATX PSU?
