power is singular --> need 'has'
'both' is not required, B is best.

Narrowed it to B or E.
B for correct SVA.

I often struggle with the correct way to use "both". I narrowed it down to A and B. Other than the difference between have and has is there a reason why A wouldn't work.

they refers to "Computer chips"....
And has refers to "The power".

B, because of correct usage of "both" for maximum clarity and concision
