Am I able to do shallow DoF with RX100?

I hear that the 1.8 aperture of RX100 is mostly a marketing gimmick. You aren't able to achieve a shallow DoF except for some extreme macro-like kind of shots. Is this true? I'm trying to see if I can buy a small compact camera that is capable of producing decent level of portrait shots with nice bokeh. Thank you.

Sony RX100
