Ibanez Tremolo

What type of tremolo does my Ibanez GRG 170dx have?

It says it has a floating type and its name is FAT10.But what type is it?Is it a floyd rose or kahler type or something like that?

what does floating type mean?

It looks like it's proprietary to Ibanez. Ibanez doesn't use Floyd Rose or Kahler bridges in any of their guitars. Especially in their lower end guitars like this. They have used their own bridge system since the 80's (Edge). If I remember right, they used to use licensed Floyd Rose bridges but didn't want to pay for the Floyd Rose brand name any more so they developed their own. I'd imagine they developed this for these guitars since a higher end model would come with an Edge bridge.

Edit:

When you see a bridge referred to as a floating bridge, that just means that it's not a fixed bridge. Floyd Rose, Edge and Kahlers are all "floating bridges". It's a type of bridge, not a brand. In order for a tremolo bridge to work, it can't rest on anything. It needs to "float". The "floating" is caused by tension of the strings being equally balanced by the springs pulling the bridge in the other direction (in the body of the guitar).

I'd imagine Fat 10 is just what Ibanez decided to call that particular bridge model and nothing more.
