If possible move to 13 it works better than 12 and has some graphics
improvements already in place (intel works better but still amdgpu
seems useless on modern card) :-)

I have upgraded from 11 -> 12 -> 13 with no problems. Yes you will
have to rebuild your ports after upgrade (I am using pkg).

If you are using drm-kmod for intel disable loading this one in
/etc/rc.conf before upgrade, perform upgrade, rebuild from ports, then
try by hand if that works. ABI changed and this module caused some
pain including kernel panic in a loop on mounted filesystem on 12.

Good luck :-)
