As of now all chips made post 2015 HQ or MQ have VT-x.
You are stating that the HQ can be overclocked slightly more within your article but then you are stating that the MQ can be better overclocked under the "Differences" section.
Correct.
You don't say xD
Hello??? WRONG description.
They also have an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000, which is clocked at 400MHz. and GpuGPUGPUGPULabelIntel® HD Graphics 4600Intel® HD Graphics 4600
Your missing perhaps one of the most important differences, the HQ is BGA (soldered in) while the MQ is PGA (socketed). HQ has VT-d, MQ does not. Both CPU's can be overclocked past 3.6GHz and graphics past 1200MHz.
