This sampling technique, which is hardware-independent and almost entirely transparent to the user, employs a budget-based approach that jointly considers warm-up and sampling costs, presents them as a single parameter to the user, and distributes simulated instructions between warm-up and sampling based on region partitioning and clustering information. Although it focuses on practicality, the technique delivers nearly state-of-the-art speed and accuracy.
