For this you can probably find some passive options. I could find a couple on amazon though I am not sure if they would plug in to your ports or not. But I generally think going with an active adapter is a better more reasonable choice. Cheers

this is what i have bought numerous times to do this. i keep going back to it since it works very well.


nice quality and tight fit in the port. worth the $10.

do note though the speed you can expect for various resolutions. if you want full speed DP, then you need a monitor that can use the DP natively so you don't lose the performance using the adapter.

as long as quality is still better than VGA , i'm happy.

many thanks !
