Those of you that have been into the world of crypto for longer than two years probably remember the Israeli Bitcoin mining hardware manufacturer Spondoolies-Tech that has shut down its operation back in early 2016, well, the company seems to be back with the same team and a new ASIC miner. This time however Spondoolies Tech is not going for the Bitcoin ASIC market, instead they have announced a very powerful and pretty expensive X11 ASIC miner. Spondoolies Tech SPx36 is a new deice that supposedly can deliver 540 GHS X11 mining hashrate with 4.4 kW of power usage, giving you an efficiency rate of 8.1 J/GHs, but at a hefty price of $15500 USD and with deliveries scheduled for October 2018.
Spondoolies Tech SPx36 Specifications:
– Hash rate: 540 GH/s (+/- 10% at 25 °C)
– Power usage: 4400 W
– Efficiency: 8.1 J/Gh/s
– Operating temperature: 5-35 °C
– Dimensions with PSU handles: 595 x 434 x 88 mm
– Gross Weight: 19.5 kg
– Warranty period: 180 days
Even though the news about Spondoolies Tech getting back in business and their new product being interesting specs wise, the serious price tag with the current market conditions are not going to make the device very attractive for most miners. With the current market situation the miner would be capable of mining about 10 DASH coins or roughly 10% of the price of the device per month, so not terribly bad, but still may not be worth the risk for many people. It is up to you however to decide if an investment in Spondoolies Tech SPx36 is worth or not in your own specific case.
