USB-C just means it uses the mini rounded off edge adapter. I'm assuming you meant USB 3.1 which are the really fast USB ports and in that case I have great news for you. That's exactly what is happening with NvME! Both USB 3.1, thunderbolt and NvME interface via PCIE lanes to achieve their speeds. In a sense, the only difference between the 3 is the shape of the port used to plug stuff into it. (obviously there is a lot more to it than that though)
