No - GIMP does 8 bit gray, 16 bit graya, 8 bit indexed, 24 bit
RGB and 32 bit RGBA. That is, if you look closely, 8 bits per

The next version of the GIMP (out soon) will be 2.2, and will not
use gegl. The following version 3.0 should include gegl, which is
a graphics library which abstracts away things like bitdepth and
colorspace from image representation. It is certain that gegl
will have a floating point pixel mode (it does already), and
probably that the GIMP will add an interface to use it, so
version 3.0 will have 48 bit floating point RGB, 64 bit floating
point RGBA, and may well have 128 bit floating point RGBA. 

It may also have a 16 bits per channel integer representation.

Don't know, I'm afraid. Have you looked on the gimp.app
sourceforge page?
