> Hi, in regards to the above thread, does anyone know the best way to solve a 1e6 x 1e6 sparse non symmetric system?  I am using mldivide (it takes around ~2 min)? Are there any iterative methods that are much faster, and if so, how can I quickly generate the preconditioner (using ilu seems to be slow)?

It depends on a million things, e.g., how sparse the matrix is, how diagonally concentrated it is, etc...

See here for some discussion
