That still doesn't exactly validate driver overhead. The way he had to set that up the ram has less bandwidth than the console (68GB/sec vs 14GB/sec) and the gpu is short on bandwidth aswell because he had to run it through the nvme port with an adapter, maybe like a bad pcie riser cable is caused issues for the rtx gpu.
You didn't really watched the video...
People, THE "PROBLEM" IS REAL.
It's a fact.
People already knew years ago that the Nvidia driver was doing more work than the competition on the CPU and that was not a problem, for most of the time it worked as and advantage. But now that the CPU have to calculate the work for DOUBLE ALUs on Ampere a downside manifested itself, that is, by doing so much work on the CPU weaker CPUs may not be able to keep with with the necessary amount of work to feed the GPU hurting performance.
Not everyone will be affected by this, but it's there.
