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.
