    Of course the Titan would be capable of a longer length. It's power regulation on inputs and outputs is probably much better than the cheaper cards. Plus plenty more connectors to ground vs only through pcie.

    Power drop. Even data signals are a form of energy. Eventually the gauge of the wire adds up over distance increasing the resistance the aforementioned signals must travel. See: Ohm's Law.

    The reference 650ti is rated for 110 watts and only has 1 6pin, so it HAD to be drawing some power through the risers. While the titan xp, rated at 250 watts and having two 8pin connectors each rated for 150 watts, could draw all its current from the power supply that you had right next to it.
