Not that I know of. In theory you need the active one for all resolutions. Check HardOCP however. I know they had a thread going about using the cheaper passive adapters that would work. Something was mentioned that there were cases where the passive ones would work, but AMD couldn't guarantee it. Its a lot easier to say "active adapter is needed", and not "you can use a passive adapter in these cases".
