My understanding is that the adapters don't do well with folding, but honestly I have two adapters and no need for them currently and haven't tested it. Also being an Intel desktop platform I'm not sure how the lack of cores would work out with folding liking to use a full thread per GPU WU, not sure the performance hit (if any) if you "overload" the CPU side of GPU folding.

Folding suffers more performance loss from decreased PCIe bandwidth than mining does. Here is a thread on the topic: https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=28847

It does-ish. I saw no difference running a 1080Ti on 4x PCIE 2.0. 1X for sure cuts folding down. Maybe once PCIE 4.0 comes out, people can use 1x for folding.
