No. Each PCI-E connector is seen by the OS as it's own PCI bus, and has
a dedicated link to the PCI-E host bridge. A PCI-E x1 (single-lane)
connector is 2.5Gbit/sec full-duplex. Lanes can be bonded together for
more bandwidth. x2, x4, x8, and x16 combinations are possible, but I
have never seen an x2 device or connector. x16 is most commonly used
with video cards.
