The number of programs doesn't really have anything to do with whether a chip is a 4 bank chip. Chips are either 1 bank or 4 bank. A four bank program overrides the entire computer and will work even if there is a box code mismatch. A one bank program overrides only tune bank 1 and will not work if there is a box code mismatch. A multi-program chip, such as a 2 program (Superchips flip-chip), 3 program (Diablo Delta) or 4 program, could, in theory, have all 1 bank programs or all 4 bank programs.
