This infographic highlights the sensor areas of both models compared to other common sensor formats:

Infographic: Q-P and Cyber-shot RX100 V (A) sensor area comparison

Note: 1-Euro coin for scale; the coin at 23.25mm diameter is slightly smaller than a US quarter.

Boasting an area of 864mm² (1.38 sq.in.) the sensor of the Q-P is a lot larger than the Cyber-shot RX100 V (A)'s chip at 116mm² (0.19 sq.in.). In most cases a larger sensor will yield better results in low light, a considerable advantage in many situations (e.g. interior images), a clear disadvantage of the 1" format.
