It's sure,at least as far as the cards shown at CES in early january......The pictures of the cards shown working had a 6 + 8 pin PCI-e power connector setup,so the power use of the card is anywhere from 225 to 300 watts with that arrangement.

This is pretty much the best pictures i could find on short notice(click to make it bigger),but we can notice that the top power plug is an 8 pin one,and the bottom one seems to be a 6 pin one.
