Are the Focusing Screens for the Km, Kx, and Kr all the same?

I have the Km, and am considering a newer DSLR.
I have a few manual focus lenses and bought an upgrade to the Focusing Screen because the stock Km screen was hard for me to judge.

So, I'm curious if the screens for the 'newer' base model Pentax DSLRs are the same one, or splitscreen, or what?

The focusing screen in the K-x is the same as the screen in the K-m. Don't know about the K-r.

I prefer the prism to judge, 'eyeballing it' just wasn't working.
