 NO.  it's NEGOTIATED.  if the HOUSING supports it AND the Card
supports it, 1920x1080 is ALLOWED.  but to do that, the Housing MUST
be capable of simultaneously supporting 1366x768 *AND* beyond.  in the
case of fixed LCDs, the only way to guarantee that is to have line (or
frame) buffer upscaler ICs *ON THE HOUSING*.

 it's NOT as simple as "1920x1080 is supported, period".

 doesn't have to be amphenol.  any mass-volume connector will do.
MiniPCIe was also something i considered in the past, but finding a
right-angle "slotted" connector like the old games consoles proved
elusive.  and also i was concerned about accuracy of mating, and about
having to create a surround shield custom casework.... look at the
intel card you'll see what they did.  that cost tens of thousands of
dollars in tooling costs to make.
