Yep. Most of the hex-wide core systems I've seen had 1x or 2x H219B.
I sold my hex-wide core back in the 80s and went with MOS.

It's the KT8A. I have one (and 128K of MOS to go with it). It's only
really useful as a RAM disk for OS/8 or if you are one of the very few
people who ran RTS-8 (I built an RTS-8 system back in the day, with a
32K OS/8 "task". I didn't have a "real" purpose for RTS-8, so it was
all just for learning. You couldn't do two OS/8 tasks, so it wasn't
like you could have two users on the same CPU at the same time).
