Will be used for light gaming and maybe a virtual machine.
The specs:

i7 6700HQ
AMD Radeon R9 m375 2GB
8GB RAM

i5 5200U
NVidia Geforce 940M
8GB RAM

Which would run faster?

On notebookcheck.com the Nvidia is listed as quality mid-range card at number 150 and the ATI is 151 so they are about the same. But the processors the i5 has a U behind it and that means under powered. The U processors are used in a lot of 2 in 1 devices and are more energy efficient, temperature efficient than the processor with HQ. HQ's are quad core and use Hyper Threading and turbo boost. The U processors are mostly 2 cores.

I would go with the i7 6700hq personally. It's a great quad core processor that packs a lot of punch. The graphics cards are on a level playing field as terms of performance.
