multiple ring buffer performance issues

I just computed multiple ring buffers for a point in EPSG 4326 with a 100m intervall for a maximum distance of 1000m. I was observing a calcualtion time of approx. 50s within ArcMap, 4min in ArcGIS Pro and 40s as a processing service.
Yet I would love to see the same performance in ArcMAP as well as ArcGIS Pro because I am shipping a toolbox with this arcpy command:

def createDistances(incr,maximum):
    #as we have the raster now, we will need a multiple ring buffer:
    distances = []
    for dist in range(incr,maximum+1,incr):
        distancesString = ";".join(distances)
    return distancesString
distancesString = createDistances(100,1000)
arcpy.analysis.MultipleRingBuffer("Your single point feature", r"your ring buffer name", distancesString, "Meters", "distance", "ALL", "FULL")

Are there ways to increase calculation times in ArcGIS Pro?
