Took a long time to load data from Azure SQL Database into ADLS Gen2 by using Azure Synapse Analytics

I tried to use the Copy Data Activity to load ~58GB data into ADLS Gen 2 by using Synapse Pipeline. It took around 1 hour to do so. However, when I used the Copy Data Activity with the same configuration in ADF Pipeline, it only took several minutes. I was wondering why since we both use the same pipeline in two scenarios. Is there any way that I could load data from Azure SQL Database in Synapse as fast as in ADF? Please help. Thank you very much.
