    They're making it so higher-power GPUs can come out in the 4.0 spec. As long as they use additional power cables.

    It opens up the options for PCI-SIG branded dual-GPU cards, and other similar high end options.

    Nope nothing really changed as expected. PCI Express 4.0 just doubles the bandwidth and there is a chance that the max power consumption is higher then 300W.

    Cards which consume more then 300W now, do not comply with the standard and don't have a PCI Express logo on them. That could change with PCI Express 4.0, but of course doesn't change anything for the end user except an extra logo on the box.

    If somebody has 4-way SLI isn't that basically 75×4 up to from the slots combined anyway? Or up to 300W of load on that 24-pin cable? I know not all GPUs max out the slot but hypothetically speaking.

    Motherboards designed for that usually have additional power (molex or 6 pin pcie)

    Source: My rampage v extreme has additional molex for pcie.
