Lambda cold start are much quicker than Fargate. With Fargate it can easily take 10 seconds, depending on the container likely, for it be ready to execute.
Lambda is almost always sub 1 second

Probably worth noting that the /tmp folder for local storage has a maximum capacity of 512Mbytes. I've run into certain cases where this has become the bottleneck for using Lambda and I've had to use Fargate instead
