I have tested the game with the settings given above on a GTX 1050 ti 4 GB paired with an Intel i3 8100(both not overclocked), and I was getting more than 60 FPS all the time. I was even hitting 80-90 at times. So if you are using a GTX 1050 ti then you shouldn’t have any issue enjoying NBA 2K21 smoothly.
