PC System Analysis For Horizon: Zero Dawn Requirements
You need a Core i7-4770K 4-Core 3.5GHz or Ryzen R5 1500X processor coupled with a GeForce GTX 1060 to run Horizon: Zero Dawn system requirements at recommended.

Medium settings, 1080p, 35-45fps. Can reach 60 by turning adaptive res on

My GPU is a somewhat overclocked version of the recommended GPU. It still maxes out my GPU on minimum settings at 1080p without giving me a stable frame rate. Make sure you're at least a bit above the recommended requirements if you want a chance at running this game smoothly at 1080p without downscaling.

If I'm GPU limited on a GTX 1060 6GB and can't maintain 60 FPS at minimum settings, there's no chance a 1050 Ti is going to handle 60 FPS on medium.

its playable using RX 560 2gb on 720p
but unfortunately your CPU compared to the video will produce different results (lower fps)
