Are all RAM expansion cards the same, functionally?

I have an Applied Engineering RAMWorks II card in my system, and have configured the RAM disk under SOS and Pascal. Works great.

I'd like to obtain another for the backup system. I see there are several other similar cards available, such as the Meg80Z 1MB RAM card.

I'm guessing that due to the way bank switching works, these cards (for the //e) probably are are pretty much the same-- that is, the Applied Engineering software will likely work.

On the other hand, I could be completely wrong.

Does anyone KNOW?

Unfortunately, not all extended RAM cards are compatible - sometimes the differences are trivial hardware tweaks.
