The ST has a pretty nifty DMA controller which was seriously fast in its day.
1.2 mbs full DMA with 75% of the CPU cycles free. Some people have managed to get 2 mbs out of it. That probably helped. I can't imagine any hard disk drive from 86 could have pushed the ST. I really like the idea of these videos on the Amiga. Pretty cool.
