NX2 speed-based alternative for NEF

I am looking for a solution to apply fairly basic operations to Nikon NEF raw files for D300 & D7000 but faster than NX2.

The operations are mainly:

- Change exposure

- Change white balance

- Apply noise reduction

- Resize

- Apply watermark

The problem: NX2.4 is just too slow for the batch operations I have. Even when I tried to use it as a file renamer on a quad-core, it was only doing about 10 a minute and bringing the system almost to its knees. Please note I am not asking for how many hard disks, what processor or what operating system I need. I'm not even asking whether NX2 is fast enough for you personally. I need software that is optimised for speed.

Can I batch all the above operations unattended on Photoshop CS5 with plugins and can anyone quote the throughput they are getting? Thanks.
