It's about time. They were stuck at 6TB while everyone else has 10 and HGST has announced (but not shipped) 12TB.

The specs and other materials do not identify the platter counts. Bottom screw locations imply the 6 and 8 use at least six platters each.

Any word on availability?

We don't have anything else right now. They're always going to be a step behind, but good to see more options.

OK, found a Toshiba 8TB for sale. Actual picture, and the listing claims 7 already sold.

However, it's an MG05ACA800E enterprise drive. I don't recall anyone announcing this drive. The 8TB MN announced in this story is the MN05ACA800. Did Toshiba ship the MG 8TB without an announcement?
