ya all know card didn't start with 6 and 8 pin power connections, right?
adapter wise - its just the same as dual 6 to single 8 that (used to?) come with every card (that has 8 pin) and also there was dual molex to single 6 pin prior; PSU OEMs will catch up.
don't recall any of that affecting sales . . however what makes this unlikely is pci-sig published the standards first everytime previously.
maybe NV engineers are screwing around and give the findings to PCI-SIG to push the adoption earlier - just spit balling.
Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
