Pigtail or separate cables

the cable wouldn't have the pigtail connector if it wouldn't be able to handle the full load

The only reason the dont use pigtail thing became a thing was because of the spiking of early high power 3000 series cards
Seasonic still recommends using separate cables for graphics cards above 225W TDP, as they cut corners (even in their highest end PSUs) by using regular instead of HCS terminals (9A instead of 13A), and use 18AWG cables instead of 16AWG. So it depends on the PSU.
Same would go for other PSUs without HCS terminals and 16AWG cables.
The CXM 2021 specifically is fine with daisy chain, though, so it's fine in OP's case.
