With all of this in mind, it’s no surprise that AMD hasn’t changed the way power is delivered to the card. 75W of the board’s power is supplied via the PCI-Express interconnect (there’s no support for 150W power draws through the socket on PCIe 2.0 boards) in order to retain backwards compatibility with older motherboards
