You might be able to but I would not rely on it. The Windows 8 FAQ mentions upgrading from previous versions but does not specify upgrading to the final released version. I know in previous releases it was not an option. At the end of the day you should treat it like beta software and not depend on it working.
According to an MS MVP's in a thread on answers.microsoft.com:
...note that the final release of Windows 8 will not support upgrading
from any prior Windows 8 "Preview" release, though the migrate option
will still be supported.
More information on the "migration" option from Paul Thurrott's Win SuperSite. There are four possible choices for Windows 8 upgrade and from the Release Preview and only the minimal migration of personal files is supported. Applications will need to be reinstalled. And I agree with his closing comments:
Should you take advantage of this feature? Honestly, if you’re using a Microsoft account to sync settings already, and have configured the SkyDrive desktop application to reconfigure your Windows 8 libraries already and store important documents and other data files in the cloud, you may be better off just doing a clean install. Of course, you perform either of these install types at your own risk, and be sure to back everything up ahead of time either way.
