BOINC application installed on Acer Aspire, model E5-522G-62QT (NX.MWLER.004).
BOINC application correctly detects and uses both GPUs - CPU internal and external.
| OpenCL: AMD/ATI GPU 0: Mullins (driver version 1800.8 (VM), device version OpenCL 2.0 AMD-APP (1800.8), 1648MB, 1648MB available, 128 GFLOPS peak) | OpenCL: AMD/ATI GPU 1: Hainan (driver version 1800.8 (VM), device version OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1800.8), 2048MB, 2048MB available, 320 GFLOPS peak)
However, in configuration on the site I can see two internal GPUs.
 AMD Mullins (1648MB) OpenCL: 2.0
(see it here -- http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=8015962)
Fix it, plz.

The site will always display a "mismatched" pair of GPUs as a pair of what BOINC believes to be the more capable GPU - it is a "design feature" and has something to do (or at least had something to do) with the scheduling of tasks and the guesstimation of flops....

I think this is only cosmetic - to simplify the web pages only the "best" GPU is shown.
In your case the "best" GPU is determined because of "OpenCL 2.0"
BOINC reports all the details to the server, I recently made 2 posts about that:
Applications know where they run and detect both GPUs OK:
Running on device number: 0
Low-performance GPU detected, default period_iterations_num set to 500 Used GPU device parameters are: Number of compute units: 2 Single buffer allocation size: 128MB Total device global memory: 1648MB max WG size: 256 local mem type: Real LotOfMem path: yes LowPerformanceGPU path: yes period_iterations_num=500
