    The plug shown in the image may be an extra, have seen such when the power supply can be used with different motherboard/CPU combinations. The Intel and AMD CPUs use different motherboards and Custom computers or aftermarket power supplies are built to work with either type, use different combinations of the wires provided. The OEMs have their power supplies built to order, as they want them, seldom have extras that only add to the cost.

    That particular plug is on same cable as other one going to GPU so it's for PCIe only. As far as I know, there's no particular PSU for Intel or AMD.

    As far as I know power supplies are universal and support AMD and Intel CPU's. The power plugs/headers on the motherboard are the same regardless of which CPU it supports. Generally the more expensive a power supply is (the higher the wattage) the more plugs and cables it will have. It's not uncommon to have unused plugs/cables on your power supply.

    If you wish to stress test your GPU to see whether its fans spin up, the classic way to do that is FurMark:

    My only caveat is that some graphics cards drivers detect FurMark and throttle back the card to prevent it from heating up. (I don't think that recent nVidia drivers do that, though.)
