The other question, is what's the physical connection - are you using different cables or adapters to connect a display to a Thunderbolt 3 equipped mac, vs the Thunderbolt 1 or 2 of the 2012?

The OP's LaCie monitor has VGA (D-Sub 15 pin), DVI-I, and DVI-D inputs.  No DisplayPort of any kind.  The monitor's resolution is not high enough to require dual-link DVI.

There should not be any need to use Thunderbolt (as opposed to MiniDisplayPort, HDMI, or USB-C) on the Mac side.  Likewise, use of the VGA port on the monitor side should be a last resort.
