Brandon Hix (Acolyte) added a comment to T67954: Cycles crashes on GPU render using OpenCL - Dual AMD WX 7100 GPUs.

IIRC the double enumeration occurs because of two different OpenCL platforms being available - one from AMD, one from Intel. I have found the Intel platform for OpenCL to be quite unreliable - I think I've blacklisted it for Cycles in Rhino so that one can not select it.
FWIW I run on a machine that has one WX 9100 in it (and a GTX 1060 and a GTX 760, but that is besides the point ;) )
FWIW2: I see only one WX 9100 in the OpenCL section.

Yes, so the first two in the list are behaving correctly. This gives me a workaround, but I'm still not sure why the double-enumeration is occurring.
At my earliest possible convenience, I'm switching to an NVidia card. AMD has been nothing but headaches since I first got these cards.
Real-time performance in Eevee is a breeze, but GPU rendering in Cycles always seems to have less stability and support by the BF.

Do you have Crossfire enabled for the two cards? It seems like it's double-enumerating them somehow. I believe generally things will work better for rendering if Crossfire is disabled, similar to SLI on Nvidia cards. But I'm not an AMD user so I'm not as familiar with the setup there.

I can confirm the same specs with the same matcap issues. I have a brand new WX 7100 Pro card with the latest drivers installed today.
