Gmos don't allow the plant to have a higher potential, they only help in preventing pests or competition with weeds. I can plant a transgenic and conventional seed of the same variety, minus the implanted gene and they will produce exactly the same in a controlled environment. The issue is that controlling pests and weeds isnt perfect and thus there is some yield loss due to these factors. On our fields with low pressure from weeds we plant conventional so as to not pay monsanto royalties and bc there are some very good high yielding conventional varieties.
