Please look at the difference under Incompressible
Data Rate**


** While any OWC SSD will provide significantly faster performance than a traditional hard drive, the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G is optimized to handle incompressible (already compressed) file types, like those used by audio, video, photography professionals, for the fastest performance available​
.

Would this apply to any setup where LR and RAW files are being used?

Tech guy said yes... Said difference was -

"For incompressible data transfer rates, the main difference is that the Mercury Extreme Pro has **Synchronous** Tier 1/Grade A 3X-nm NAND Flash Storage and the Mercury Electra has **Asynchronous** Tier 1/Grade A 2X-nm NAND Flash Storage"

Thoughts?

Yes.

Most people use the Lossless Compressed option in the camera, so the NEF files are compressed. TIFs are normally compressed. JPGs are always compressed. Or to put it simply, photos are normally compressed, just like it says. Since they are already compressed they are pretty much incompressible.
