Thank you for joining the Intel(R) Communities.
As per the translate option, I understand that you want to check if a PCIe configuration can be done with the Apollo Lake processors. For sure we can check that out for you.
The configuration 1x4 and 2x1 can be used. This depends on the PCI slots available on the system as well, so take that into consideration as well.
