Spondoolies released the industrial strength "Pickaxe" SP50 Bitcoin miner

Spondoolies SP50 Bitcoin MinerThis is the latest Bitcoin miner from Spondoolies, the SP50 Pickaxe.  This is released only for large commercial miners according to Spondoolies.   Looking at the whooping 16Kw needed to power this beast, they are correct.  You will need some serious power distribution and cooling to even handle a single unit.  The hashing power is the most impressive aspect, tipping the scales at 110 TH/s of mining capability.  They state it only used 0.15 / Watt per Gh/s, this makes it the most effiicent mining solution available to the commercial mining market.   We assume is still uses that clean UX admin interface and the design is pretty clean, getting its inspiration from the current Blade server chassises from Cisco.   The blades look to be the mining modules, 10 blades in all.  That means they have gotten 11 TH/s in each blade, that is a major improvement over the SP35 Yukon.
