A couple of small studies demonstrated that sulforaphane from raw broccoli is better absorbed than from cooked broccoli. However, a newer study suggests that eating broccoli sprouts with lightly cooked broccoli (steamed 2-3 minutes) is even more powerful than simply eating raw broccoli.
I would use broccoli sprouts rather than a supplement, however. Some powders have been shown lacking in the enzyme myrosinase that activates the sulforaphane. Raw sprouts contain the myrosinase and are a better choice.
