Only thing that allows Windows to do anything in "realtime" is that machines are far faster than the many minicomputers used for realtime work (Xerox Sigma series, Systems Engineering Labs, Modcomp, Harris, Interdata, etc.). These machines had a variety of hardware features that supported quick context switching (think multiple register sets, multiple memory maps, bit level instructions, etc.), and huge numbers of priority interrupt levels to facilitate realtime processing (at least one machine had 127 levels of priority interrupt). Usually it was a simple matter to use an interrupt to trigger a process to go do something quickly in response to an interrupt.

Once the PC came out, these machines quickly died as eventually so did the VAX. market for realtime work was relegated to the embedded processor work and realtime kernels.

In their infinite wisdom the NT designers didn't allow Interrupts to do ANY significant processing. They handed that processing off to something called the Dispatch Priority Level, a sort of netherworld between the interrupts and the OS.
