Question for RX100III owners who make big prints

I've moved to Micro43 from larger formats because, at the largest print sizes I typically make (15x20 inches on 17x22 paper), the image quality of current M43 sensors with the best M43 lenses is to me indistinguishable from the IQ of bigger cameras. In other words, at that print size, any IQ advantage of the larger format is irrelevant.

I'm considering picking up an RX100III to carry on those occasions where even the M43 kit is too large and heavy, such as when running, cycling, or doing non-photography travel. I'm curious what RX100III owners who actually make prints (old-fashioned, I know) think the largest print size is at which the IQ advantage of a good larger system becomes similarly irrelevant. At what print size are you unable to see an IQ advantage for your larger system (and what system is that)?
