Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2 PCI Express x1 slot speed?

I have a Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2 which has the AMD 760G chipset and am trying to work out whether or not the PCI Express x1 slot on this board is PCI Express 2.0 compliant. I had a look in the manual and it says the PCI Express x16 slot definitely is 2.0 but haven't been able to find out if that also applies to the x1 port. Is anyone able to please confirm if its 1.0 or 2.0 as I am looking at adding a SATA3 controller card and need to know if it's capable of supporting the higher speed on that slot?

    Thanks for the response but that page still doesn't confirm if the x1 slot is definitely PCI Express 2.0 compliant though.

    Would it just be safe to assume if the x16 slot is then the x1 also would be too?

    yes ~ PCIe x1 is gen 2 as well.
