Short question, does the pci number go backwards in performance?
To explain does 1x beat 16x or 8x?

You meant PCI Express where x16 > x8 > x1. 16, 8 and 1 are the number of lanes. x1 is a short slot while x16 is a full length slot.

The higher the number of lanes the better the performance so x16 beats x1.
