Hard realtime has nothing to do with *fast*, just deturministic response. If I can write a system that always has bounded latency of 1 hour, then I am in the hard realtime realm (though not useful really). If I have a system that has average latency of .00000001 nanoseconds, but on some pathalogical cases cannot be anylized, then we are out of the deturministic (hard realtime) realm, no matter how much faster this second system is.
