M.2 2242 port on P52s

The P52s has a small M.2 2242 port.  I wasted money on Intel optane to be placed in this port and want to change this for an NVME drive. From what I have read this slot will not work with Sata SSD's, you have to use a 2242 NVME SSD.


So far I can only find 512gb NVME drives in the 2242 form factor. Is this the largest option?


Also, please correct me if I am wrong but I have read that you can only use NVME PCI based SSD's on this port, If I can in fact use a sata ssd in the 2242 form factor, that would be great. I just want to add a 1TB drive.

NVMe only.  SATA does not work.  Sorry.
