Yes, clearly it is if you compare between species. Humans are much more intelligent than rabbits, for example, because we have bigger and more complex brains that take a long, long time to mature.

Within a species it's less obvious, but since evolution has favoured larger and more expensive brains must be the case that they give us some advantages and that these advantages to some degree are dependent on genetics.
