I wanted to see how bad it was, so I took two monitors, identical model, identical settings, and both DVI and VGA inputs, and tested it. I tested several configurations, including active adapter vs native vga/passive adapter and active adapter vs native DVI, and the results I found were very pleasantly surprising. Not only did it outpace the passive VGA adapter in the lagom.nl/lcd-test latency timer photo comparison, but it also outpaced DVI, to my jaw-dropped levels of surprise. I will buy another one if the need arises and am glad that my favorite monitor of seven years can last me for another year or so of gaming, with my RX 480.
