To be fair to Sapphire, AMD didn't leave them much to work with on Vega64. I can almost guarantee you there's been low-level casual lunch meeting with Sapphire and Intel talking about discreet graphics cards.

Isn't the new head of Intel's discrete graphics efforts the same guy responsible for Vega?

I suspect the 3x 8-pin PCI Express cables are for water cooling enthusiasts who may remove the OEM cooler
