Yep, on GPU you need both.

Often if you trace the pins, the 8 alone will do (as they're linked) but they often want to draw more power than those cables can provide.

 

Best thing about those new 10X0 series GPUs is that they're smart enough to notice their power is low, and just stop turboing\throttle.


Wherever you go in life, watch out for Scythe, the tackling IT support guy.
