    i thought P35 don't support PCIe 2.0. first Intel chipset to support it is x38.

    Nope. P35 has PCI-E 2.0 in it - Intel itself has confirmed that at least twice with us. The only thing that we can think of is that the P35 designs were closely related to the P965 designs which meant boards could be turned around faster (a necessary factor at a major launch) and 2.0 qualification would be more cost intensive and even less necessary than X38 given the market and performance difference between Gen-1 and Gen-2.
