Tristate Buffer Output if Input is High-Z?

All the IIfx ram I have and have seen were 9 chip (1MB and 4MB SIMMs). I
think the 16MB SIMMs were very tall and had more then 9 chips on them like
the ones in the picture below.

The machine pictured has 68MB of ram (4x16MB plus 4x1MB). 128MB is the
maximum ram available. It looks like the 16MB SIMMs in the picture have 36
chips on them (probably the same chips that make up the 4MB part just 4
times as many).

I Hope this helps.

I also notice that the table on page 2 of the technote contradicts the IIfx
section. The table says you can put up to 128MB in a IIfx, but the IIfx
section says the biggest SIMM allowed is 256kx8.
