We present a parallel Preconditioned Bi-Conjugate Gradient Stabilized(BICGstab) solver for the Poisson problem. Given a real, nosymmetric and positive definite coefficient matrix, the parallized Preconditioned BICGstab – solver is able to find a solution for that system by exploiting the massive compute power of todays GPUs. Comparing sequential CPU implementations and that algorithm.we achieve a speed up from 8 to 10 depending on the dimension of the coefficient matrix. Additionally the concept of preconditioners to decrease the time to find a solution is evaluated using the AINV method.
