Performance of UTF8?

I wonder what the performance of UTF-8 is and how it degrades when compared to UTF16 (in Java or C). Since it has only a small overhead it might not be that dramatic but how does it works out for the Chinese language?

Also I would love to know if there are better ways to handle those issues or if it is worth to store everything in UTF16 even within a database?
