I'm guessing probably not. Even the very small PCs from GPD can use the M.2-2280 size.

Western Digital SN520 M.2 2242 NVMe (also available in M.2 2230):

https://www.wdc.com/about-wd/newsro...t-edge-and-mobile-computing-environments.html

Furthering the miniaturization of NVMe-linked storage, WD also unveiled the SN520 series of SSDs, marketed under the Sandisk brand. The SN520 utilizes the popular M.2 connection format, and is available in 2230, 2242, and 2280 sizes, at capacities of 128, 256, or 512 GB. The specifications sheet touts read/write speeds of 1700/1400 MB/s for 512 GB SKUs, 1700/1300 MB/s for 256GB SKUs, and 1500/800 MB/s for 128GB SKUs, all of which easily outclass SATA3 SSDs. (Of note, speed is not affected by the length of the drive, for this model, a 2280 length drive is as fast as the 2230 or 2242 length versions.)
