Is a GTX 970 better than a 1050Ti?
The 970 is a higher level of card, they are not the same. The one thing that might make you choose the 1050 Ti is that it uses less power, if you have a weak PSU. That memory allocation thing was a technical/marketing issue, it should not impact your decision here and now.
Can a Cyberpunk 2077 run 970?

Although Ultra 1440p might be a bit too much for this GPU, it would return 46 FPS on High graphics setting.
