Segment Reporting [Abstract]  
Operating Segments
Note 3 : Operating Segments
We manage our business through the following operating segments:
We derive a substantial majority of our revenue from platform products, which are our principal products and considered as one class of product. We offer platform products that incorporate various components and technologies, including a microprocessor and chipset, a stand-alone SoC, or a multichip package, based on Intel architecture. Platform products are used in various form factors across our DCG, IOTG, and CCG operating segments. Our non-platform, or adjacent, products can be combined with platform products to form comprehensive platform solutions to meet customer needs.
DCG and CCG are our reportable operating segments. IOTG, Mobileye, NSG, and PSG do not meet the quantitative thresholds to qualify as reportable operating segments; however, we have elected to disclose the results of these non-reportable operating segments. Our Internet of Things portfolio, presented as Internet of Things, is comprised of the IOTG and Mobileye operating segments. Beginning with the first quarter of 2021, we expect our DCG operating segment to include the results of our Intel Optane memory business, and our NSG segment will be composed of our NAND memory business.
We have sales and marketing, manufacturing, engineering, finance, and administration groups. Expenses for these groups are generally allocated to the operating segments.
We have an "all other" category that includes revenue, expenses, and charges such as:
results of operations from non-reportable segments not otherwise presented;
historical results of operations from divested businesses;
results of operations of start-up businesses that support our initiatives, including our foundry business;
amounts included within restructuring and other charges;
a portion of employee benefits, compensation, and other expenses not allocated to the operating segments; and
acquisition-related costs, including amortization and any impairment of acquisition-related intangibles and goodwill.
The CODM, who is our CEO, allocates resources to and assesses the performance of each operating segment using information about the operating segment's revenue and operating income (loss). The CODM does not evaluate operating segments using discrete asset information and we do not identify or allocate assets by operating segments. Based on the interchangeable nature of our manufacturing and assembly and test assets, most of the related depreciation expense is not directly identifiable within our operating segments, as it is included in overhead cost pools and subsequently absorbed into inventory as each product passes through our manufacturing process. Because our products are then sold across multiple operating segments, it is impracticable to determine the total depreciation expense included as a component of each operating segment's operating income (loss) results. Operating segments do not record inter-segment revenue. We do not allocate gains and losses from equity investments, interest and other income, or taxes to operating segments. Although the CODM uses operating income to evaluate the segments, operating costs included in one segment may benefit other segments. The accounting policies for segment reporting are the same as for Intel as a whole.
Net revenue and operating income (loss) for each period were as follows:

2    Includes all of our non-platform products for DCG, IOTG, and CCG, such as modem, Ethernet, and silicon photonics, as well as Mobileye, NSG, and PSG productsIn 2020, our three largest customers accounted for 39% of our net revenue (41% in 2019 and 39% in 2018), with Dell Inc. accounting for 17% (17% in 2019 and 16% in 2018), Lenovo Group Limited accounting for 12% (13% in 2019 and 12% in 2018), and HP Inc. accounting for 10% (11% in 2019 and 11% in 2018). These three customers accounted for 43% of our accounts receivable as of December 26, 2020 (39% as of December 28, 2019). Substantially all of the revenue from these customers was from the sale of platforms and other components by the CCG and DCG operating segments.
Net revenue by country, based on the billing location of the customer, was as follows:
