Does the Intel UHD graphics 630 chip of the Mac mini 2018 support 30-bit color (ARGB2101010) over DisplayPort via the ThunderBolt 3 port?

Another name for "30-bit display" is "10-bit color per channel display" or "deep color" or billion colors.

I have an Eizo CG277 monitor that supports 30-bit display ( but I cannot use this feature with my current mac hardware.

The only information that Apple provides is the following: "Thunderbolt 3 digital video output supports Native DisplayPort output over USB-C".

I would like to know whether the Intel Graphics UHD 630 chip on the Mac mini 2018 supports deep color with a 10-bit display IPS panel or whether I need an eGPU with a dedicated graphic card?

I intend to buy the Mac mini 2018 with the Intel "Core i7" (8700B) six-core processor, 32 GB ram  and the 2TB ssd.

I need to verify this information before I make the decision to buy.
