yes it is.

The only reason for the 4 cables adapter is the old PCIE connector has a power rating of 150W, so they need to use 4 cables to avoid exceeding the specification.

Once you remove those connectors you don't require 4 cables, and only need a cable thick enough to take the current. In fact, the PCIE cables on ATX3.0 is a single cable, with 12VHPWR connectors on each end.
