Sandy bridge and PCI-E x16 or USB 3.0

Hello
Do you know if intel sandy bridge can support PCI-E x16 I visited their site (Intel I mean) but their chipsets whether h67 , p67 or even z68 can't handle x16 because it says in the diagram like this x1 , x2 and x4 am I wrong or else funny part is that even inel mainboards with sandy bridge inside both have PCI-E x16 and also USB 3.0. Can you explain that ? very thanks :bounce:
