Question here, if our board is nvram native, does this mean we don't need emu variable driver in clover drivers, not clover uefei64....It is not really enough information as a valid way to check for "native NVRAM". As to whether you're using native UEFI support for NVRAM depends on which drivers you have loaded in drivers64UEFI.
If you have EmuVariableUefi-64.efi installed, then you're using non-native NVRAM.
Lack of EmuVariable allows using native UEFI services for UEFI.
A common mistake people make which breaks NVRAM completely is to use EmuVariable, but forget to install "RC scripts to boot volume". In that case, NVRAM is emulated, but never saved to disk for later restoration after restart.
One advantage of native NVRAM is that it doesn't require a clean shutdown in order to be saved. This enables crash reports upon restart after KP.
