Yes. The 3 series uses Alpha "white" tubing, the 4 and 6 series use Alpha black, and the 8 series uses red, their top shelf aluminum. geometry is presumably varying as well as some come stock with 100mm forks while others have 80mm.

You're welcome for going to their website for you.

3000/4000 = same frame geometry, different frame material
4000/6000 = different frame geometry, same frame material
6000/8000 = same frame geometry, different frame material
3000/4000 series is a different frame geometry to the 6000/8000 series
