Sorry but that is simply not true.

Then your server load will be around 0.5-1.5. You cannot run an efficient board while having the load at 15.
Load is essentially "processes in queue". 1*cores load means all works in about realtime. To interpret any loads higher than that is not that straighforward. What those processes are, are their queuing really slowing things down, how long do the queued processes need to execute etc?
