Like this:

... | streamstats current=t window=3 count(eval(cpu>=80)) AS count80plus
| where count80plus==3

How we did that was to pull together the list of inputs and then add a streamstats like this:

| streamstats current=t window=3 values(status) AS last_three by input_name 

Something like this:

index=_internal sourcetype=dbx_job_metrics 
| sort input_name _time 
| table input_name _time status
| streamstats current=t window=3 list(status) as last_three values(status) AS values_three by input_name 
| search values_three != "COMPLETED"

You'll need to adjust a little to get your > 80% in there.. but that's the basics of it.

Here's a search with numeric values - that you can look at:

index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd kb=* 
| table _time sourcetype kb 
| eval threshold = if(kb<80,"UNDER","OVER")
| streamstats current=t window=3 list(kb) as last_three list(threshold) AS all_threshholds values(threshold) AS last3_threshhold 
| eval ALERT = if(last3_threshhold != "UNDER","All 3 were OVER","")
| eval GOOD = if(last3_threshhold != "OVER","Last 3 were all good","")
