Yes. Many Z690 motherboards have that.
For example https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813144486?Item=N82E16813144486&cm_sp=SH-_--_-8-_--_-13-144-486-_-MSI+z690+edge-_-MSI+z690+edge-_-4

MSI MPG Z690 EDGE WIFI DDR4
Has 4 M.2 slots, all of them are 4x PCIE Gen4. The first slot is connected directly to the CPU, the other 3 go through the chipset. The chipset itself is connected to the CPU via DMI Gen4 with 8x lanes.

Hard to imagine this heatsink is worth $17 extra, unless there's something I'm missing, and the drive itself is somehow different

From the techpowerup review:
"Our real-life testing suite goes beyond synthetics and runs the actual applications at 80% disk full, which is a more realistic scenario than a completely empty drive running a synthetic test. Real-life benchmarks are much harder to optimize for, too. Here, the Rocket Q4 shows much weaker numbers that are surprisingly low. When averaged over all our tests, the Q4 matches PCIe 3.0 mid-range drives like the Kingston A2000 and Samsung 970 EVO. High-end Gen 3 drives like the ADATA SX8200 Pro, Kingston KC2000, HP EX950, and Hynix Gold P31 are between 6 and 9% faster—not that much, but still significant."

Considering most systems only have a single gen4 NVMe slot, it might be better to get a similar price and quality gen3 drive rather than this, and save that gen4 slot for a higher quality and speed option

Still waiting to replace my 1TB NVMe SSD I bought four years ago for $69. Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron stop colluding to milk the consumer at 1-2TB kkthx. We are ready to be cheated at 8-128TB.

Everyone has been brainwashed to eat these high price because xyz reasons. It's easier and cheaper to print ssd NAND memory than make a hard drive yet you don't see those staying stationary at 1-2TB for the past 4 years.

QLC, and it's rated kind of low in terms of longevity. It should be good enough for everyday gaming though.

Need a smaller heat sink. The one sold with it is too large. If you get a smaller heat sink, yes it should work.

It's under Sony's recommended speed, but I'm sure it'll still work. Might just have loads speeds be a second or two slower at worst.

This is usable with the PS5, but not recommended. It's under the recommended speed. The Rocket Plus is the one you'd have to get.

FWIW,
Gen4 so it will work in a PS5
4700 read speed < 5500 Sony recommended
In real life, you probably won't notice any difference, especially with PS4 games.
There are many examples of people on Reddit who got "slow" gen4 SSDs working in their PS5
