Arc drivers and the iGPU drivers are fairly different and you should not expect the same maturity.
That's one of the main reasons the arc series kept getting delayed. Intel expected they would be able to use their igpu drivers with minor modifications. By the time they figurrd out that wasn't going to work, they didn't have time to write new drivers and release anywhere near their original anticipated launch date.

That's a lot of progress even if it seems small. Most GPU driver updates don't improve performance by 3%.
