Photoshop CC: 30 bit color stopped working after Windows update (Nvidia Driver)

I have had a working 30 bit color workflow for some time. BenQ SW2700 display, Quadro M2000, Photoshop CC on Windows 10.

A while ago Windows pushed the feature update 1703 and I was reverted to 24 bit. The reason proved to be display driver. Windows installed a default driver, I got my 30 bits back by installing nVidia driver.

Now version 1709 was pushed on my PC and again I lost my 30 bits. This time installing nVidia driver didn't solve the problem. I have reviewed all the usual settings but cannot make it work. Is there some new setting I have not found or is there an incompatibility between 1709 and PSCC?

Thankful for any ideas.

Replying to myself. Beta version (QNF) of nVidia driver is required, the production (ODE) driver do not seem to support all features in latest Windows versions. After installing QNF version 388.16 I got my 30 bits back.
