No, it's one per cable.

If you have a spare PCI slot (or another type of card slot), you can add
a SATA host card.  Though, remember that can cause the computer to
renumber the drives (whichever it considers the first drive may change).
If you find your computer doesn't boot after adding drives, change where
the drives are plugged into, put your first drive where it thinks the
first drive socket is.
