To make this less confusing how many video cards needing two connectors each can be supported by this PSU. One or two cards???
2 x 2 = 4.

Two cables, with two connectors each. Sorry... didn't realize that was confusing.

Your review was not confusing. It was H.S. that stated that there are four video card cables that was confusing. And Gabriel's last comment to me was that there were four cables.

So two cables with two connectors each equals two video cards needing two connectors each. That makes sense. Four cables with one connector each doesn't make sense when the PSU panel only allows two video connections.

On the Seasonic X-Series the video card cables are attached to a single connector, yet using independent pins (the wires are not installed in parallel). Because of that, the cables used by the video cards are 100% independent, even though on the power supply side they are available on the same connector.

The sample we received had 15 cables, but since the video card cables are attached to a "single" connector, people counted 13 cables.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

Thank you for the clarification.
