I'm not even sure what do they mean in the first place, but some fansubs release episodes in 2 versions, 8-bit and 10-bit. Anyone can help clear the confusion?

10 bit is basically...just better. If you know how bits work, the more the better.

I kinda knew 10-bit is better, but care to explain it?

Biggest difference is file size from what I see, I've read that there might be a slight improvement for "banding issues" in video but that's one for the speclialists. Basically though, you're getting the same quality for a smaller file size. The improvement does vary, however as sources are improving, some series can get extremely large file sizes when dealing with say, a blu ray source. As a good example, the CGi release of Bakemonogatari was brought from a 20GB 8bit encode, to a 10GB 10bit encode.

Only thing you need to worry about is whether your software for video playback is up to date to support it, and (I THINK) that your hardware is capable of handling it because it requires a little extra juice, CPU most likely.

Oh I see... and yeah, I think my machine can handle it. Thanks a lot!
