Can't switch between two GPU Radeon VIIs within AMD Radeon Settings

I have 2 Radeon VIIs installed in my Desktop Computer and am trying to see if it is possible to switch between them using the AMD Adrenalin software. I have followed instructions on other pages detailing out fresh driver installation, etc. to help but the option still doesn't show up. 


The purpose of doing this is that I am rendering animations and the Blender 2.8 Eevee engine will not use both Radeon VII GPUs at once, neither will it render on a specific GPU even when you select it from the menus- (including my attempt to use my Nvidia 1070 card instead of the Radeon VII if you can believe that...) it basically will only read the first OpenCL GPU on the list. I read that other artists with different Radeon GPUs have been able to render with specific GPUs enabled by changing the GPU setting within Adrenalin then opening up different instances.

Does anyone know if Radeon VII cards are switchable or know any possible way to solve the issue within Blender? I am quite stumped on this one...
