After the recent news about the first X11 mining ASIC iBeLink DM384M ASIC DASH miner it seems that others people working on X11 ASIC hardware are going public with information about their work. The announcement was made in the DashTalk forum and does not contain a lot of information, including more detailed photos and videos, so you should be careful and not treat that information as 100% true and accurate. According to the specs mentioned the miner using a custom developed X11 ASIC chip called Shooter will be capable of achieving 500 MHS hashrate for X11 mining for Dash or other crypto currencies using the same algorithm with just about 280 Watts of power usage.

The price of a single miner is set at 500 Dash or equivalent amount in BTC per device with shipping cost not included (roughly $2000 USD at the current price without shipping). Each buyer can only purchase one device at most. 50 devices should be available next month according to the official information. Estimated to be shipped by Mid-March via UPS, SF-Express from Mainland China. Below is a quote of the officially published specifictions.

Miner Specifications:
– Hash Rate: 500 MH/s ±10%
– Power Consumption: 280 W ±10%
– Number of Shooter chips per unit: 60
– Operating Temperature: 0 °C to 40 °C
– Power Supply: ATX 12V required
– Dimensions: 290mm(L)*130mm(W)*150mm(H)
– Weight: 4.5kg

Shooter X11 ASIC chip:
– Single Unit Performance
– Package Type: QFN64 8mm*8mm
– Interface: SPI
– Hash Rate: 8.5Mhash/s @400Mhz
– Power Consumption: 4.3W @400Mhz

We have already pre-ordered iBeLink DM384M and are waiting for a unit to be shipped, so we can confirm its existence for sure and do a detailed review of the device. Meanwhile we would advice people that are interested in purchasing the miner not to be in a hurry, especially with the additional news of another (unconfirmed) X11 ASIC promising better specifications that may also be coming soon.

Visit the official website of the developers for more details about their X11 ASIC miner…

Interesting announcement for what seems to be the the world the first X11 ASIC miner as well as the 1st DASH ASIC miner called iBelink DM384M. Developed by Tiannengbo Group, a consortium of high tech companies based in China. The iBeLink DM384M Dash miner contains 4 hashing blades and a Raspberry Pi B+. Each hashing blade contains 48 TNB0301 ASIC chips, and can be managed (or controlled) for mining separately. The total hashrate of one unit is supposed to be 384 MHS with a total power consumption of 715 W. We could not find any additional information other than what is posted by DualMiner who will apparently be selling the first units of the device, so we are not yet able to confirm for sure if this is real X11 ASIC miner. We are going to be keeping a close eye on this as it really seems a very promising alternative to GPU mining of X11 and could easily bring the end of X11 mining with video cards if true.

iBeLink DM384M Miner Specifications:
– Hash Rate: 384 MH/s ±10%
– Power Consumption: 715 W (at the wall, with 25C ambient temp)
– Power Efficiency: 1.8 J/MH (at the wall, with 25°C ambient temp)
– Number of TNB0301 chips per unit: 192
– Operating Temperature: 0 °C to 40 °C
– Network Connection: Ethernet
– Power Supply: 110V to 240V, 50Hz/60Hz
– Certifications: FC, CE
– Dimensions: 490mm(L)*350mm(W)*180mm(H)
– Weight: 21kg

Miner Features:
– High integration for Plug and play (just need to connect power and Ethernet)
– Contains 4 hashing blades, LED for each blade’s status
– Faulty conditions self-detection and auto restart
– Email warning for abnormal hashing conditions
– Faulty chip detection
– Possible DIY repairing faulty hashing boards (modulated hashing board, 8 boards/blade)
– DIY reducing fan speed(or noise) by selecting low voltage power (reduced hash rate)
