Because they like to show off - Intel's have quad pumped FSBs which have big numbers

Besides, AMD doesn't use FSB (as a protocol) since 3.5 years ago, it's quite ancient technology. AMD uses HyperTransport (HTT) which is right now at 1000MHz bidirectional, so kinda like 2000MHz. If Intel were to produce a CPU with 2000FSB we could say that the transfer between CPU and NB on both platforms is of similar speed.

Once the next generation AMDs come out, their "fsb" - Hypertransport speed is going to bump up to 2.6ghz bidirectional for a total of 5.2ghz!!!
