NBA 2K21 PC Requirements and Real Game Trailer

NBA 2K21 PC Requirements and 

Real Game Trailer


The developer 2K Games has confirmed the minimum and recommended requirements of NBA 2K21 in its version for PC, a game that will be available for the current generation of consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, and that will have an improved version for new generation consoles, Xbox Series X and PS5.

Unfortunately, at 2K Games they have thought that it is a good idea for the PC version to be based on the same one that will be used to shape the game on PS4 and Xbox One, something that is obviously noted in their requirements, which are very low for the times that run, but at the same time, it will imply a significant sacrifice at a technical level.

I remind you that NBA 2K21 will be a more expensive game in its version for the new generation, a subject that has brought controversy and that we had the opportunity to discuss in this article.

We cannot directly compare the two versions of NBA 2K21 yet, but we will do so when the version is released for next-gen consoles. In the attached video you can find new scenes of the real game that reflect, in detail, all the keys of the game at a technical level. Without further ado, we entered to see the requirements.

NBA 2K21 Minimum requirements
  • 64-bit Windows 7.
  • Intel Core i3 530 or AMD FX 4100 processor (two cores and four threads).
  • 4 GB of RAM.
  • GeForce GTS 450 or AMD Radeon HD 7770 graphics card.
  • DirectX 9
  • 80 GB of free space.
We have very low requirements, but there is a significant error in the graphics card equivalences, as the HD 7770 is much more powerful (between 35% and 40%) than the GTS 450. The correct equivalence of the latter is the Radeon HD 5750.

NBA 2K21 Recommended Requirements
  • Windows 7 64-bit or Windows 10 64-bit.
  • Intel Core i5 4430 or AMD FX 8370 processor (quad-core).
  • 8 GB of RAM.
  • GeForce GTX 770 or Radeon R9 270 graphics card.
  • DirectX 9
  • 80 GB of free space.
The recommended requirements are nothing to write home about, either. The equivalents at the CPU level are not bad at all, although the Core i5 4430 has a higher IPC than the FX 8370 and offers superior performance in general, except in environments where the eight threads of the second are really used. A Ryzen 3 1200 would be above the Core i5 4430.

We have another error in the graphical equivalences since the GTX 770 is more powerful than the R9 270. The correct equivalent of the latter would be a GTX 660 Ti.
