Quoting: dubigrasuGPU Nvidia Physx is already available for Linux since 2014. I think Metro Redux games are using it.

Yep we've used it in loads of games, whenever the Windows version uses PhysX we use t on Mac/Linux too. It's a standard physics library these days for many titles.

I'd also note most games only use it in software mode, it's very rare any game uses hardware mode as that was Nvidia hardware only. Software works on all graphics cards so that's the but most dev use.

Fun fact we were the first ever people to use PhysX on Mac back in the day.

About that, is there any tool/way (on Linux) to detect the physx mode in use (CPU vs GPU)? I'm thinking something similar with PhysX Visual Indicator on Windows: http://physxinfo.com/wiki/PhysX_Visual_Indicator

I think the Nvidia drivers might have a way of telling but I honestly can't tell you.
