Yes, news machines uses the same NVRAM with sun4c machines (MK48T02).
There are some descriptions in NetBSD/news68k FAQ
but, umm, we also have to have NetBSD/newsmips FAQ...
(volunteers appreciated :-)

It's R3000/25MHz and IMHO it is not so fast.
I haven't tried dhrystone (or other benchmarks),
but it looks as same as SPARCstation1+ (L64801/25MHz),
and slower than HP 9000/382 (M68040/25MHz).
Of course, it's much faster than NWS-1750 (M68030/25MHz) :-)
Anyway, I'd suggest you adding more momory for your newsmips.
