May be a typo?


Explanation:
There is another term in German which is very similar, Kabelpritsche which means - cable ladder. Being the context is graphics cards and having no other context to go on, I would say this does not suit your text however. Looking through my technical dictionaries, I was not able to find much. Ernst, Fwb fuer Industrielle Technik, offers for Peitschenfoermiger Kabelanschluss -cable splitter. WIth regard to "Peitsche" itself, it offers whip.

Good luck!

Explanation:
I have to retract my previous response. After a thorough internet search, I realized this was not a typo. This appears to be a splitted connection cable.
