    Do you know where can I get one?

    EDIT:
    According to this review: LINK it's to allow 6 monitor output.

    Take note that ASUS also has a BIOS switch, but it it not a BIOS switch. It changes the vBIOS display output functionality allowing for a 6-way Eyefinity setup (2 single links) or a 5-way (single link and dual link). Differences in display resolution will occur to the DVI ports under this configuration.

    It's changing the behaviour of left-most DP and DVI (marked red in the picture above).
