You cannot rely just on host timing.  Processes & threads get

Hmm and wouldn't something as a global clock help? You know that all
components would be given an information that this is the "start of the
epoch" (power up of the computer) and whatever you do, you sync it to this

I assumed that you meant that already originally.

Only way to guarantee that things happen at timed synchronization
points (without using locking between threads), would be real-time.

However, you don't want to run program that can take all
the CPU as real-time, as that would make rest of your computer
completely inoperable.

(Real-time processes need to have strictly bound CPU usage.
To keep OS still interactive, they shouldn't take more
than few tens of percents CPU.)
