You really lost me there man.
This will be one of those
0 = a hard drive
- = the path the data follows.
C = your cpu
Your hard dive can only read or write X amount of data in given length of time and the bandwidth of video is very high..
If we only have one hard drive it first has to read the data, process it the n write it back to the drive. (note the = is represents 2 minus signs)
If you have two hard drives you can read from one drive, process the video and write to the other drive
In other words we don't have a bottleneck during the read/write portion of our processing.

Real time editing costs money. As I mentioned it's the CPU that is usually the bottleneck. If you add a whole bunch of filters effects etc... 1 hour of video can takes hours to process. That machine utilizes hardware to do it real time.
