I doubt this driver will install on Debian 10. There is this post by Gary Roberts at Einstein which ...

Yeah, Einstein doesn't use DP math. Apparently memory bandwith/performance is one factor for Einstein performance but I think it's more complicated than that.

The app version distributed by mint is an older version. Perhaps installing the latest version manually would fix that error.
