Also AFAIK both the HQ and MQ are the same, except that the MQ is a socket processor that you can replace.
Yeah, it happened with 8xx series laptops when the 9xx series was released.
MQ has unlocked current settings. When OCing an HQ more often than not if you try tweaking voltage to lower tdp and get a higher clock the current limit(pcl) kicks in and throttles the cpu anyway.
Notebooks cpus are great, almost identical to desktop variants but absolutely no fun to try and OC for better performance. Intel locked everything down unless you get the really expensive models.
