No. Denise is the video chip. Agnus is responsible of the two
different ways for memory addressing, and only has side effects on
graphics memory avaliable. An 8371 (most A500's) gives 512K graphics
memory. An 8372 can give 1 MB, an 8372A/8375 can give 2 MB, obviously if
the motherboard is of the right type (es. A500 rev. 6).
