So the OS also needs support for 10 bit (not listed in your workflow)?

And what is the difference between 8 and 16 bit in Photoshop and 8 and 10 bit in the video card/display? I was under the impression that with 16 bit editing and using a wide gamut display you're seeing 1 billion+ colors?

No, 16 million colours, your display pipeline is 8 bit at most unless you have invested in a 10 bit pipeline as described in this thread. Your display driver will take your 16 bit original and convert it to 8 bit for display so whole subtle ranges of colours in your original will be displayed as a single colour.

OK, but my display is set to 32 bits (true color).
