Do not even think about getting the P1. I bought mine hardly a month ago (Intel Xeon, 32GB ram, 1TB, P2000 Nvidia Graphics) - it has no manufacturing faults or other errors whatsoever but the battery drain on this thing is absolutely crazy.
On full charge it gives me a maximum of 3 hours or 4 hours - EVEN when the only thing i use is the Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser for reading. That too with the P2000 Nvidia display driver disabled (as suggested elsewhere on a thread here to save/improve batter life).
Right now its at 64% and tells me I have 1.3hrs of use left. It is so so frustrating. I wasted so much time and money on this dud machine.
I've been a Thinkpad enthusiast for too long - and I am so severely disappointed.

You cannot compare a x3on with an i7 and xeon is only available on P1.

The original post didnt mention a specification for P1. Since Xeon is an option out in the market and I've had for a bit - i can only speak for what my use has been like.
If it helps, great. If it doesn't, the original poster can disregard it i guess.
Though I didnt expect lenovo support forum to be policed like this.

I do have the 4K panel. And I haven't found a solution around the battery consumption of 4k panel.
I just updated the recent Vantage driver for power management and it gave me 5.2 hrs on full charge at first. On second charge it showed me 4.6hrs on 100% battery and then 5.3hrs on 99% battery on both Vantage and windows indicators :/
So my machine might be faulty. Im going to contact lenovo support for assistance.
