[Pw_forum] very high pressure in scf

1. How does the pressure come out in the 2nd input? Coordinates of
atoms in the first and 2nd inputs are different, hope you can see

2. What are these lattice parameter of the system calculated with
ABINIT and QE? They are using different potential so the lattice
parameters are not be the same. A few % of changing in lattice
parameter (in comparison to equilibrium lattice parameter) can lead to
a huge change in the pressure.
