  2. I thought the 10xx series of GPU's don't have any analog signal and therefore you need an active (powered) adapter.

  3. You don't need active for DVI to VGA, only DP to basically anything else
  4. If you have DVI-I then you can use a passive adapter. If you have DVI-D, then you need an active adapter. Last I saw, the entire Pascal line of GPU's does not have any analog (DVD-I) support at all. so you would need an active adapter, whether it's HDMI or DP or DVI-D to VGA is up to you.
  5. ^ absolutely right , the adapter chemmajorp53 posted will not work with any of the newer cards
  6. I assumed they all had DVI-I guess I wasn't paying attention, never heard of anyone going from DVI/HDMI to VGA on pascal
  7. ^ unfortunately Polaris cards are the same.
    I have no idea why the decision was made to remove native analog support from new gpu's.
    You would have thought at least the lower end 1050 & RX 460 cards would have it as these are cheap upgrade cards ideal for older systems where VGA only monitors are still likely used.
    Probably keeps costs down/profits up - only reason I can think of , unfortunately means the end user has to spend $10-20 on an active converter.
