The claim is true.

My day job is LAN netwwork performance. One lane of PCIe Gen 1 will
barely handle line rate, but it does handle line rate.

Yeah, PCIe x1 is 2 Gbits, which is just enough for full duplex. Since it's a serial bus (unlike PCI's shared/arbitrated bus) with dedicated bandwidth, you can count on the 2 Gbits at all times too.
