Some irrefutable law of physics should allow that the smaller sensored camera, in this case the RX-100, will have more pixel density, therefore much smaller pixels and resulting higher noise.

An illustration of this would be seen in comparing the RX-100 to the (smaller-pixeled) Panasonic LX-7. Relatively high noise in the LX-7 prevents it from being as useful at higher ISO's, and has a lower dynamic range than the RX-100.

For the same reason, an APS-C sensor should outperform an m43, and a FF outperform an APS-C, all things being equal.
