Valve has released the first screenshots of its new Source 2 game engine, taken from the VR Portal Tech Demo it screened at GDC2015.
Joe Ludwig, a programmer at Valve, confirmed before the show that the Portal Tech Demo was powered by Source 2:
@ValveTime Yes, the Aperture demo is in Source 2. Alex Vlachos gave a talk including some details. Look for it on the vault if you missed it

The screenshots are little more than a tease, especially since the tech demo itself was designed more to show off the VR capability of the engine, rather than to exploit its graphical capabilities.
For those interested in seeing the Source 2 Engine in action, MaximumPCMag managed to capture a short video of it during Valve’s GDC presentation:
