No. You would need an X11 ASIC which do not exist at this time, ASIC's are algorithm specific only ones for sha-256 and scrypt have been developed thus far.

Cant I just change the algorithm from sha-256 to x11 ?
No, ASIC's don't work like that, ASIC is short for Application Specific Integrated Circuit the reason it's so fast is the hardware was purpose built for sha-256 it literally cannot do ANYTHING else. I mean yes there are some scrypt + sha-256 ones but those don't really "switch" anything they are just two ASIC's bundled into one unit.

Can I mine with Gridseed miners??
You cannot use any ASIC for X11, you will have to wait around 8-10 months. X11 is a new algorithm and current ASIC only do Scrypt so... you need graphic card rigs for darkcoins.
