PCI Express (PCIe) 6pin power Connector Pinout - AllPinouts

From AllPinouts
Jump to: navigation, search

This connector is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. Many video cards draw significantly more than 75 watts provided by the motherboard slot, so the 6 pin PCI Express power cable was created. These high-power cards draw most of their power from the 12 volt rail so this cable provides only 12 volts. These are sometimes called "PCI Express cables". They are also occasionally called "PEG cables" where "PEG" stands for PCI Express Graphics.
