No it doesn't.

Suppose I take 16 of the 64K * 1 DRAM chips (4164s). I wire them up to an
8 bit databus with the apporporate control electronics so I get 128K 8
bit locations. That stores 128K bytes.

I now wire them up differently to a 16 bit data bus system. I haev 64K 16
bit locations. That's _still_ 128K bytes of storage.
