Judging from his posting I linked to, the latter.

According to what Neko wrote, you can run an x1 connection from an x2 controller, but only one, not two. So you'd be effectively throwing away one lane. While an x2 connection doesn't seem that useful at first sight, you can use a PEG slot (x16) with an x2 connection, similar to how it is done on the Sam460ex.
