Yes. For "multimedia". With RT kernels XServer tasks are nonimportant
and you might end up with mplayer decoding every frame without
skippining or messages "your computer is too slow" but in other hand you
might not se that on screen because kernel would not have any time to
refresh the X-screen. Since it's unimportant thing.
Inputs and outputs are most important thing in RT kernels, so it's most
anticipated with audio/video recordings in realtime.
So yeah, "it's for multimedia"...
Good luck on the new way in life.
