Can I run an HD7990 off of 2 power supplies?

With the paper clip method it should not be a problem,i have done that myself as part of an experiment.

I own 2 antec vp500p v2 power supplies. If I connect one of the power supplies to one of the 8 pin connectors on the graphics card (and the rest of the components) and connect the other power supply to the other 8 pin connector on the graphics card will it work? I've used 2 power supplies to power a pc with a gtx 1060 before and it worked fine but that only used the 6 pin from one power supply and not 2 power supplies powering 2 different connectors.
