One of the 4, Mini DP To DVI adapter of My FirePro 2460 is dead & need a replacement.

I need it right away so I have to buy it from market.

But I don't know if it is active or passive ?

Also most such listed adapters are saying they are for Apple Mac & Air etc.

Would they work ?

Also what is the difference between an Active & Passive adapter ?

Thanks

They are Passive miniDP-to-DVI adapters.  I would not recommend the use of the Apple adapters for the FirePRO cards on a PC.

Apple adapters have a really bad reputation when not used together with apple devices (where they work fine).
