Zotac 3090 power requirement

Hi all just upgraded to a Zotac 3090 from 2080ti. I'm unsure of correct power cables, my 2080ti had just one cable with two 8pin plugs. Can I just use this for the 3090 or do I need to plug just one of the 8 pins in and install a second cable for the other eight pin, I'm assuming the single cable doesn't provide enough power. Many thanks Paul

yeah the zotac can pull 350w, you'll get about 60-70w from the pcie connector and the rest split on the PSU cables. You can feel them getting warm on full load
