As a test, I put 20 NEFs in a folder and renamed them in a batch operation with no other adjustments. The operation completed in 28.57 seconds, which works out to about 42 renames per minute.

Thanks for the concrete figures. These caused me to try disabling the antivirus and I got nearly double, even with white balance and exposure adjustment. The noise reduction is still very slow and to be honest, not very good. It just applies what looks like a glowing blur, I forget the photoshop name for it. Things like Topaz denoise do better.

Does anyone have a figure for how quick Lightroom is to batch exposure and white-balance changes?
