AMD R9 290 working on PCIE 2.0 x8

I have issue with my GPU  - Sapphire R9 290 Vapor X Tri-x OC

CPU Z, GPU Z, AIDA 64, HW INFO and AMD Software reports

Bus Type    PCI Express 3.0 x16 @ 2.0 x8

Should not it work on 2.0 x16?

I know its old motherboard with PCI E 2.0, but  mobo and gpu works fine, and still this reduced PCIE bandwith bothers me. Besides GPU there is no other card in pci slots. Already disabled integrated gpu ati radeon hd 3300 in bios.

Look at screenshots and see is there solution to work on 2.0 x16?
