X11 is the name of a chained hashing algorithm. This algorithm uses 11 different algorithms that are chained together. The first coin to use it was Darkcoin, which has since rebranded itself as ‘Dashcoin’.
The X11 algorithm was used to claimed to be ASIC-resistant. However, check out this hottie! The X11 ASIC miner, it hits a high speed of 450MH @ only 335watt, which is times faster than CPU and GPU mining.
The PinIdea Dr2 450MH X11 ASIC miner is one of the most powerful dash miner. The hash speed is 450MH/s and the power consumption is only 335w.
|Hash Rate||450 MH/s ± 5%|
|Power Consumption||335W + 5%|
|Fan||2 x fan|
|PSU||NO integrated PSU, need a PSU > 400w with 6pin x 2 or 8pin x 2.|
- This is how you will receive the order from EastShore.
- Open the box.
- The miner is set in the foam preventing damage during the delivery.
- The dimension: 28.5cm x 13.8cm x 17.6cm.
- Weight: 5KG and nearly 6KG after packed.
- The case of it is alloy material and black semi-matte paint.
- All the cables or controller are hidden inside the case of the miner. This makes the miner simple and elegant.
- There are two 12cm PWM fans(12V 1.6A) on the front end and back end of the miner.
- On one end of the miner, there are two status lights. This end of the miner is air inlet.
- There are two 8pin ports and ethernet ports on the other end of the miner. This end is air outlet.
- Let’s take a closer look at all the ports.
- And the inlet and outlet fans.
- There are some screws at the bottom fixating the hashing boards.
- And also there are four rubber plastic non-slip mats on the bottom of the miner. Let’s take a closer look:
- Opening the case, it reveals two blades.
- From the front end of the miner, we can see the structure of the miner inside.
- At the top of the miner are the IO board and the controller (and two power cables for the two fans).

- Test screenshot: when frequency set as 450.
- Test for power consumption and noise (Test result: The power consumption of the miner relates to the efficiency of the PSU, we use the 750w LITEON Mining PSU in the test. In our test, the power consumption is about 344w with the default frequency(400) set.)

- The design of the miner is sophisticated, sturdy, practical and with relatively smaller size.
- After being tested for a week intermittently, the performance of the miner is stable. The hashing rate is a bit higher than the official released data, it hit a speed around 460M when the frequency set at 450.
- The miner is easy to use, and it supports remote control.
- Cooling is no issue due to the high rotation speed of the fans (12V 1.6a), the temperature of the chips is only around 30℃. Yet the decibel of the miner could be perceived as a bit high, it can be improved by changing the fans with slower rotation speed as long as the temperature of environment well-maintained.
- The miner is cost efficient, with 1M@0.65watt, which is 50 times of the R9 GPU miner (1M@37w).
