Can Gazebo use GPUs to accelerate RTF / physics

Hey,

is there any way to let Gazebo 9 or Gazebo 11 do the physics calculation (ODE or bullet) on GPUs? I found on the tutorial page the link text example but if i get it right, it's only to split the calculations on the CPU threads.

On the gazeboism mainpage it's mentioned that libbullet 2.82 is implemented, this version was introduced in late 2013 but i'm not sure if it's capable of GPU usage.

I also found this old package for ROS groovy link text which probably doesn't exist anymore. Maybe something like this is already integrated, maybe in the engine itself?
