I’m Pretty Sure That’s The Softcap. (Destiny)

I do not think that’s true. I feel like I remember stuff in the Contact public event dropping at my power level.

They described this change in the twab before shadowkeep, https://www.bungie.net/en/Explore/Detail/News/48188

The Power bands for Season 8 are as follows
Floor: 750
Soft Cap: 900
All drops up to this point will be upgrades to the most powerful item in your inventory or vault
Beyond this point, only powerful and pinnacle rewards will increase a player’s Power
Powerful Cap: 950
All non-powerful/pinnacle rewards are capped at 950
Pinnacle rewards are the only way to raise Power above this point
Powerful rewards are equivalent to the character’s highest-equippable Power beyond this point
Pinnacle Cap: 960
This is the highest Power at which gear drops; also known as the “hard cap”
The Seasonal Artifact bonus Power allows characters to attain values above this level

I didn't really play arrivals, so I'm not sure if there were some sneaky powerfuls in there. I do know that Crucible/Strikes/Gambit have a random chance of dropping a powerful on completion so that can make it confusing too.
