Not completely true, you still need good enough latency to run the servo-thread, so Linuxcnc can do the motion planning and io sampling properly.

Yeah that's not quite true. Hm2 will generate steps and count encoders in FPGA fabric but the CPU still has to respond to the the stepgens or update from the encoders quickly. It's a hell of a band-aid to not great latencies but single ended GPIO isn't effected at all so if you had to read or write to I/O with something other than an encoder or stepgen it doesn't help at all.

Then again encoders and stepgens are probably the worst 2 things you can have to handle with software so it is much better for these.
