It depends. They came in a variety of speeds, I think 300Mhz to
450Mhz or so. Faster than intel machines of same Mhz, and better
disk I/O than most PC class machines of the era.
Vore, the current sparc buildd, is a 300Mhz Ultra 30.
I was recently asked about providing a Sparc machine for a Debian
project. I didn't have that fast of a machine to offer.
