There is no such hardware. The Tegra, that you are thinking of, has an NV extension that exposes the half-float rendering. Desktop GL also had separate texture float and color-buffer float extensions, (though the latter predates FBO so is only for the default framebuffer; when FBOs were introduced to desktop float rendering was supported so no extension was necessary).

The ES group has no interest in a color_buffer_float extension because no vendor currently has the feature.
