Multi graphics cards in 8x pcie slots

I see a lot of motherboards will offer 2 pcie 2.0 slots, and if you use one of them, it will give you a 16x lane, but if you use both of them (hence sli or crossfire), you only get 8x lanes. Does this hamper performance?

    Generally, no. Maybe a little if you install the top of the line cards from AMD or nVidia in XFire or SLI.
