Modern processors have following internal components:

Execution Unit: This unit processes the instructions.

Bus Interface Unit: This unit interfaces with memory

Primary cache: This is also called Level 1 or L1 cache. Primary cache is a small amount of very fast memory that allows the CPU to retrieve data immediately

Branch predictor: This is used to predict about the branch instructions.
