it means they didn't specify.

probably. ask the marketing droids that wrote that. the formal name
is PCI Express Base 2.0 specification
> 3. what is speed on following:
PCI-E 1.x is 2.5GT/s and 250MByte/sec burst transfer per lane.
PCI-E 2.x is 5GT/s and 500MB/sec burst transfer per lane.
4 lanes are capable of 4 times that, 8 lanes, 8 times that, but each
lane can function independently, and its up to the card and its driver
software to dettermine how to utilize the lanes.
