The Anandtech article #1MSRJ claims that the new 10TB drives are based off of helium.

Unfortunately the press release doesn't mention it, and even the official manual for the Barracuda Pro seems silent on that. However, their previous annoucements (from January and April 2016) about the 10TB line did specify that the upcoming 10TB disks were helium-based, but no mention of the barracuda at the time.

It's a bit weird that the information is not clearly stated anywhere (yet). The case for the Pro version of the Barracuda sure looks similar to the sealed ones used for other helium disks.
