Here we see the back of the Zotac GeForce 9600 GT AMP! Edition graphics card.
Even though NVIDIA has set the power consumption to as little as 95W, it’s still more than what the PCI Express slots can deliver, and that’s why the graphics card still needs extra power trough the +12V power input we find at the backend of the card.
