CAX30 max wifi connections

Probably a dumb question. I got the CAX30 at Costco, their ad shows it supports 35+ wifi devices, Amazon says 25, ive seen articles that say newer routers can connect to up to 200+ in theory and I cant seem to find much else. I have close to 25 with smart switches, thermostats, several alexa devices and numerous phones and of course TV. I'm wondering can I connect several more devices and everything still work? A lot of my devices like smart switches im sure aren't much of a burden to the router.
