Google's John Mueller said that "you'll start to see positive effects once you get out of the "poor" area in core web vitals." This means that you may see a positive impact around the Google page experience update once your pages are out of the red area. Scoring 100 is not necessary.

John added on Twitter "It's not a magic bullet, we use lots of factors for ranking, and relevance is still very important." Again, he is saying that this is a light weight factor, even a tiebreaker - so you probably won't see much from it. But it does kick in after you are out of the poor area.
