This package seems to be a pre-compiled variant (-bin) of repository
intel-compute-runtime. If so, it should be renamed to

There is a known bug in gcc 10.1 that prevents us from updating igc. The
bug is already fixed in gcc git master, and the fix is marked to be
included in gcc 10.2, which in turn most likely will be released in late
july or august if we consider the historical gcc release schedule.

For the time being, if you really need updated versions of gmmlib and
igc, you can try to use intel-gmmlib-git and intel-graphics-compiler-bin
from the AUR.
