Does anyone know for the new 7950 dual cards that are supposively soon to arrive will each dual card have 1 or 2 pci express connectors?

I believe that the current dual cards have 2 connectors.

I think that PCB Board will have its own 6-pin PCIe Power Connector. So if You are just running one 7950 GX2 Card than you will need TWO 6-pin plugs from the PSU.
If You are going for Quad-SLI, than You will need FOUR of the 6-pin PCIe Power plugs on cables coming from Your Powersupply. I have no word yet on the power needed as far as the amount of Amperage required on the +12Volt Rail(s). Maybe Jakup can fill us in, as He has probably already seen the beasts at the LAB.
