Drug Aspirin Effects; Low dose versus High dose

is there a difference between administering low dose aspirin, and high dose aspirin- with respect to the mechanism of action??
as in, low dose inhibits only COX 2 or 1 , and higher dose inhitbits both...or something like that?

this is in reference to a question from UWSA, having a guy with stable angina
and the question asks abt low dose aspirin reducing the CVS risk by reducing
1-cox 1
2- cox 2..and some others

i thought the mech of action was inhibiting both????????
