Double 8 pin would be 375w on a 16nm die. The GTX 780 was a 6 & 8 pin. Hell, even a GTX 480 was a 6 & 8 pin. There's almost no way a stock Titan P is double 8 pin.
Its not entirely impossible, but the cores would not be just 3840 cores. It could be smth even bigger, I dunno.
Titan 16GB is just a dual GP104 card, which explain its 375W.
Titan 12GB is a single GPU which is the true single GPU Titan.

As for being cpu limited, if you are using this card anything less than 2k144, you are doing it wrong.
I thought of that too but 8+6 pins is enough to satisfy a 270W GPU.
