If need hard realtime then you need to pay HUGE sums and can reduce it to 10 or so. Beyond that... you are stuck.
In some cases you can add a dedicated FPGA or microcontroller to handle the realtime stuff and leave the computer to do less timing-critical (but more complex) work. If the problem can be split this way it's usually the simplest solution (IMO).
