Does PCIe 2.0 effect usage of PCIe 3.0 lanes?

So my CPU (i7-4790k) gives 16 lanes and my mobo (ASRock H97M PRO4) offers 1 PCIe 3.0 x16, 1 PCIe 2.0 x16, 2 PCI. My 1080 ti takes up 16 lanes of the PCIe 3.0. Would adding a Thunderbolt 2 AIC which takes up PCIe 2.0 x4 effect the performance of my 1080 ti with its PCIe 3.0 x16? If so, how much of an impact would it have? What if it was a thunderbolt 3 AIC which uses PCIe 3.0 x4?

I'm not sure which category this question belongs in, so apologies in advance if I placed it in the wrong one.
