Hi, currently I am looking to upgrade my RX 6600 XT to a RX 6700 XT but I am worried that my PSU didn't have enough juice to supply the card given that it has a pigtailed 2x 6+2 PCIE connector

My PC Specs are:
Core i5 10400F, 4x 4GB DDR4 2666, ASRock B460M Steel Legend, 2 drives, 1 NVME, 4 case fans.

PSU: Corsair CX650M 80+ Bronze

The PSU itslef should deliver enough power but my concerns are mainly the power connector. I heard that this is now a common practice across mabufacturers and the cables are rated for a higher wattage in a single rail. The bottom line is should it be fine or should I upgrade my PSU? Thanks a lot.
