What John Mueller from Google had to say about Google page experience search update.
“It is a ranking factor, and it’s more than a tie-breaker, but it also doesn’t replace relevance.
Depending on the sites you work on, you might notice it more, or you might notice it less.
As an SEO, a part of your role is to take all of the possible optimizations and figure out which ones are worth spending time on.”
A set of user-focused metrics designed to measure a page’s “health” in terms of providing a smooth and seamless user experience. These metrics are made up of three components: content loading speed, interactivity, and visual stability.

In regards to an improvement in ranking, Core Web Vitals and speed are only two factors out of many that are involved in ranking.

The Core Web Vitals report shows how your pages perform, based on real-world usage data (sometimes called field data).
The field data is a historical report about how a particular URL has performed and represents anonymized performance data from users in the real world on a variety of devices and network conditions.
Multiple surveys have shown that more than 50% of users expect your page to load within 2-3 seconds.

You have to balance making speed improvements, with total load time, and user conversion rates.
