Optimally you will have zero boost while cruising at any rpm and any speed on flat ground.
Many things will contribute to the turbo seeing load at speed. Gearing, timing, fuel, drag, etc. I know a car is tuned for optimal performance and fuel mileage when you can see vac at highway speeds and an instant tip-in to boost the moment the throttle is tapped.
