You will notice a difference only for things that need hardware
multiply / devide instructions. Sun4c doesn't have those, sun4m has.
But the 50 MHz MicroSPARC CPU of the Classic is probably about as fast
- or slow - as the 40 MHz CPU of tyhe SS2.

I'd use something like a Netra X1 for this purpose.
