Yes, but I mentioned the quality of the receive path. Devices with
higher TX power typically also have better low-noise amplifiers in their
receive path. Because TX power-amplifier and RX low-noise amplifier is a
single module on the PCB.
Furthermore a better power-amplifier is also capable of producing a
cleaner (not stronger!) TX signal compared to a low-end power-amplifier.
Finally all this has an effect on throughput and range. Without
increasing the TX power at all.
