The current emulator runs at about IIci speeds on compute bound
integer tasks. This is slower than the Centris 610. I don't know
how floating point performance will compare.

MacWeek has reported the existence inside Apple of a faster emulator to
be released at an unknown future date, but I don't know if their figures
are correct (claimed that it would emulate at 33MHz 68040 speeds
on I don't remember which of the current PowerMacs).
