    The first card has a GPU clock speed of 1710 MHz whereas the second card has a GPU clock speed of 1845 MHz.

    Higher clock speed requires more power to maintain stability, which also produces more heat which decreases stability and longevity, which can be mitigated by better cooling solution to dissipate the extra heat.

    It's also what the vendor has designed the GPU's bios to have a power limit up to.

    If the bios allows power limits to be raised over 225 watts, it would need an 8-pin PCIe connector (150 watts), a 6-pin PCIe connector (75 watts) to provide further power combined with what the PCIe slot was designed to provide (75 watts).

    Yes, the PCIe connectors and slot can provide more power than those numbers, but thats what they are rated for and are recommended to be within for safe limits.
