Keep in mind that the binaries compiled for sm_80 will likely run a lot slower on sm_86. sm_86 has distinctly different hardware and the code generated for sm_80 will be sub-optimal for it.
I don't have the Ampere cards to compare, but sm_70 binaries running on sm_75 were reached only about 1/2 of the speed of the same code compiled for sm_75 when it was operating on fp16.

NVIDIA didn't provide performance tuning guide for Ampere, but here's what it had to say about Volta/Turing:
