Dualport ssd D3600 in pcie 3x4 port

Is anyone familiar with how dualport ssds behave when connected to single device? I'm unclear if it will operate at full pcie 3x4 or if it's limited to pcie 3x2 with a single connection. I've also read that if the dual port sense pin doesn't receive a signal it will operate in single port mode at full 3x4.
