Future proofing Razer Blade with eGPU
I am considering of buying Razer Blade 15 i7-8750H and Razer Core X with RTX 2080. I can't find any benchmarks with this combo as every test seem to be made with Razer Blade Stealth or some other ultrabook. I would like to know how much better i7-8750H is compared to ultrabook cpu's.

Which ultrabooks are you looking at? You can get i7s in ultras. I.e. Huawei Mate X Pro. I would say get the most for what you can afford and you should be totally fine with an i7 for quite some time.
In my old box I have an i7 920. I built that box almost 9 years ago and only swapped out the GPU when it was starting to lag. Was totally fine for non-competitive gaming. I just now got a new laptop (Dell Precision 5530) and eGPU.
