rx 480 hdmi to dvi 2560x1600 flickers

I have a rx 480 and a lg 3000h 30" monitor with a native resolution of 2560x1600. The problem is that the monitor has only dvi, the card only dp and hdmi.

So I tried several cables with passive connections:

- dp to dvi: without virtual super resolution only resolution up to 1280x800, with vsr 2560x1600 is selectable, but the picture is very blurred

- hdmi to dvi: with vsr 2560x1600 possible and sharp picture, but flickers, mostly when the picture is dark

I searched in the internet, but the articles are very confusing: Some say, these connections would be only possible with active adapters, but obviously, hdmi to dvi is working, but with filckering.

Why is hdmi to dvi working at all in this resolution 2560x1600? Is there anything I can try to get a working configuration without an expensive active adapter?
