Yeah PCI-E 2.0 with one lane tops out at around 500mb/sec, which, with overhead, probably is at the 400mb/sec range.

Probably won't really matter since most people buy SSDs for their high random I/O performance, but its not going to be the full 600mb/sec solution that a full SATA-3 implementation would provide with an appropriate interconnect to the PCIe bus.
