Yes.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 uses the Snapdragon 600 processor and Adreno 320 GPU.
The Nexus 5 from Google uses the Snapdragon 800 processor and Adreno 330 GPU.
The Snapdragon 800 and Adreno 330 are the most powerful^
Also the Nexus 5 uses faster RAM clocked at 800Mhz compared to the RAM in the S4 clocked at 533Mhz

The Nexus 5 is more powerful in terms of raw power.

However the S4 has some unique software features (Touchwiz), design features (better size in hand) and hardware features (bigger battery + Micro SD card support) that the Nexus 5 does not. So it is worth buying the phone that suits you best and not just the one with raw power.

I personally would choose the Nexus 5 though.

Its always the achillies heel of the Nexus phones. But saying that, I currently have the SGN2, having switched from the Nexus 4. I dropped the SGN2 and it did the usual Samsung trick of phone, back cover and battery splitting in three directions. Of course the phone went off and I had to power it back on.

This never happened when I dropped the Nexus 4.
