We prove that, for the case of Gaussians on the real line, the functional derived by a time discretization of the diffusion equation as entropic gradient flow is asymptotically equivalent to the rate functional derived from the underlying microscopic process. This result strengthens a conjecture that the same statement is actually true for all measures with second finite moment.
