"export COMPUTE=:0" then run the clinfo from the same terminal.
hmm doesn't seem to have changed anything, I receive the following output if that's any help.
*EDIT* Reread the export code more carefully.

As a follow up for future reference. The problem was that I wasn't running the OpenCL programs as the same user who was using the Xsession as per this thread: http://devgurus.amd.com/message/1171058#1171058 .
