The overhead is from local copying and storage of the parameters. Pass By Reference does not involve copying or storing the copied value so technically it is the fastest. When you pass by pointer, a copy of the pointer is made (just like pass by value) so that you can not alter the pointer's value but you can alter the underlying variable. So it is the same as pass by value.
