Difference between input & output latency

Hey there.
I am user of Cubase 12 element, Mac mini m1 & Apollo twin interface. Could anyone explain me why I have quite significant difference between output and input latency. For example when set buffer at 64 my output latency is around 2.7 and input around 8 ms.
I noticed many people showing their latency in cubase have very similar input & output latency.
It’s not a big deal for me but I am curious why ?

Is it possible that you have the UA/Apollo console app running with some plugins inserted? Afaik those can add a little bit of latency. Or the driver add per default some samples to account for any possible latency caused by the UA plugins.

No plugins in there. Just solved thanks to Facebook cubase users. I have change in console setting “input delay compensation” from medium to short and now my input latency dropped from 8 to 5.8 and if I set this delay compensation for off it drops to 3.5ms
