Sorry that you had to wait this long.
The fact that you had a strep throat infection does not at all mean you have HIV infection- and could have been purely coincidental with any sexual exposure.
An HIV test being negative at 80 days is pretty strong evidence against HIV infection- Most people who are infected will show up as positive by 4-6 weeks. Less than 5% may take as long as 3 months- I generally do a repeat test at about 3 months- just slightly longer than you have had.
So, while it is unlikely that you are infected, I generally would repeat an HIV test one more time to reassure you. The strep infection has nothing to do with sex, but of course, you may want to be tested for other STDs like syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia to also reassure your new partner.
Always ask if you need clarification/more information.

Streptococcus is a bacteria- Group C can cause pharyngitis ( sore throat) in some people, but sometimes it can be asymptomatic.
If you do not have a sore throat any more, the prior strep is not relevant now.
