Yep, not to mention that there are loads of PSUs with 6+8 pin leads and none with 3x6pin
Well I think they did this mostly so that people who don't need this won't buy this. Those that do already have PSUs with too many PCI-E power plugs.
Another thing would be one more cable that you have to hide. Maybe they budle an 8pin to 2x6pin adapter with these cards
