WINHEC – SEATTLE, WA—APRIL 25, 2005—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), a worldwide leader in graphics and digital media processors, today demonstrated its 64-bit computing platform technology leadership with the immediate availability of a Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL)-certified graphics driver that supports the entire family of Microsoft Windows x64 editions. The NVIDIA® ForceWare™ suite of software drivers works with all of Microsoft’s 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems to provide customers with updated support and features that enhance their computing experience.

<snip>

NVIDIA was the first to ship a WHQL Windows XP Professional x64 Edition graphics driver. Using its unified driver architecture, the ForceWare Release 70 driver brings 64-bit support to the consumer and workstation product families. By delivering a complete feature set, the NVIDIA 64-bit driver architecture leads the way for OEM customers and industry partners to confidently transition into the world of 64-bit computing. NVIDIA has worked closely with Microsoft and other key industry partners to enable full hardware support for the latest generation of 64-bit architectures and applications in the ForceWare Release 70 drivers.

Erm guys, you forgot to release the drivers, don't try and make out that the WHQL candidate is what you were on about. I know those Alienwares up in Redmond were not running something I have ;D
After 2 weeks of fiddling, x64 is finally on us, I actually sat there and watched the entire keynote :D - Even tho one of my guys was there reporting on it... was bored ;D

im pretty sure they are like pre-beta. maybe if you email nVidia and tell them you want to test them you might be able to get a copy. its worth a shot, and they will make you agree to not release them im sure. ;)

Most likely they are bundled on the Windows x64 CD.
