Only some one completely unfamiliar with hand guns nomenclature would call a revolver a pistol. A revolver is commonly referred to as: "revolver, wheel gun or shooter (short for 6 shooter)." A semi automatic is commonly referred to as: "semi auto or pistol."

It's the round which makes the difference, not the pistol. A .45 automatic pistol is going to be more powerful than a .38 revolver, for example. There are revolvers chambered in cartridges such as the .454 Casull and .500 S&W Magnum, which aren't available in any automatic pistols, but it's still ultimately the round which matters, and not whether it's an automatic or revolver.
