Default PCI-Express 1x, what uses this interface?

I've always wondered what kind of devices use this interface, I have two of them on my mobo, and have absolutely no idea what significance they have.

pci-express provides more bandwidth. PCI-Express 4x, 2x, and 1x is used for raid controllers, ethernet cards etc.
